How to Forward Your Main Domain to Another Page or Website
Domains are treated differently than URLs and you should not be purchasing a domain from Rebrandly for the sole purpose of wanting to redirect that domain to another website. That can be done fairly easily with any domain, thus our product really serves no additional value to you.
Please note that not all websites allow domain redirects to work for them.
Places you can redirect your main domain to:
- Your main website
- A downloadable file on the internet such as a slide deck or PDF
- A recent blog post on your website
- A Google Doc or Sheet (the user will require access)
- A squeeze page, lead magnet or login page
The most important thing to note when redirecting your main domain is that it is not a pure redirect. Instead, the domain is "embedding" the destination address.
Set Up Your Main Domain Landing Page
To set up your main domain redirect. Please go to https://app.rebrandly.com/domains, find the domain you would like to change and click on it. And fill in and update the "Landing page" box:
If you see an error box this would typically mean that the location you are trying to redirect to will not accept a domain redirect, and therefore you need to choose a new destination.
Please note that Main Domain Redirect is a paid feature and may not be available in every plan.
