Prevent domain forwarding and respect 301 rules in wpengine

We are currently forwarding to, however, because we have changed many of the URL’s it has caused unnecessary 301’s which then lead to 404’s, thus impacting our current site traffic and performance.

What we’ve done is specify a list of the URL’s to 301 in Wpengine (using their redirects module) and Yoast, however, we would like to make sure these are maintained whilst removing the blanket domain forwarding rule.

What do we need to do to align the domain level redirections accordingly?

Please refer to examples not added in WPE 301 in followup post.


That hostname is not proxied through Cloudflare but goes straight to, so whatever configuration you need to change, you need to change it on their end. That is not Cloudflare related.
