Redirect to Traditional Domain

Modified on: Fri, 18 Nov, 2022 at 4:31 PM


In order to set up a redirection to a traditional domain, you will need to do a redirection via index.html on your Web3 Domain so users are sent to a traditional domain. 


  • On your computer, open a text editing software (for example: Notepad for Windows or TextEdit for Mac) and paste the following code.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  <head>
    <title>HTML Meta Tag</title>
    <meta http-equiv = "refresh" content = "1; url = YOUR WEBSITE URL HERE" />
  </head>
  <body>
      <p>YOUR WEBSITE DESCRIPTION HERE </p>
  </body>
</html>


  • Replace YOUR WEBSITE HERE with your URL (make sure to include "http://" or "https://" as respectively" and YOUR WEBSITE DESCRIPTION HERE with a short description of your website and save the file as index.html (do not use any other name).

    • Mac OS users using TextEdit should go to Preferences and select Plain text instead of Rich text. A restart of the application is necessary for the changes to take effect.



  • Please note: Now would also be a good time to open index.html from your hard drive to see if everything is working before proceeding. Right-click the file and select "Open with" followed by your browser of choice.


  • Go to the My Domains section of our website, click Manage over the domain you wish to redirect, and click the Website tab.




   

  • Go to Upload Files to IPFS and click Upload Website Files.


  •  Click Upload and browse for the index.html file and confirm.



  • Scroll down further and click Launch Website.
