We just put three domains on Cloudflare, two (
aaa.com and bbb.com) we moved to a new host and the third ( ccc.com) we want to stop hosting because it’s just a splash page, so we want to redirect that domain to a page on one of the other domains.
ccc.com → aaa.com/splash-page
In fact it might be worthwhile to redirect any url from
ccc.com to this splash page:
ccc.com/* → aaa.com/splash-page
Is it better to have the DNS point the domain to the same server as
aaa.com, and then use the host’s redirecting capabilities to direct the traffic to the one page on aaa.com? Or is it better to do this in Cloudflare? And if so how?
It’s faster to use Page Rules to redirect. You probably already have DNS records for the old domains, so you just need the Page Rule from this tutorial:
This tutorial covers redirecting one domain to another. For this, we will be redirecting domainA.com to domainB.com.
The following settings need to be configured under the domain you are redirecting from, in this example, this is domainA.com
Step 1, The DNS Record:
The first thing you will need is a DNS record for @, www and any other subdomains you want to redirect, set to
. This can point to any IP address as the redirection page rule will execute first. I would recommend pointing…
Thank you, we’ll try this!
We did the change and we’re getting a “The connection has timed out” error when going to
ccc.com, maybe it’s just too soon. Fingers crossed this works. I’ll be in touch either way.
Make sure that ccc’s DNS entries are set to
Proxied. If you need more assistance, please post the actual ccc domain name.
Ah ok, they were DNS only. I just changed them.
ccc.com = metrospherelight.com, and it needs to redirect to https://metroev.ca/divisions.
@sdayman It’s working now! Good save. Thanks so much.
