Enter a valid website address in the Relocate to domain field and click the Save Changes button.

When you enable this option, the Site Aliases and Canonical Settings ( covered below ) options are disabled.

Site Aliases

A site alias is another domain or subdomain that you want to be redirected to your site.

Enter the domain name or subdomain name in the field to redirect it to your site.

You can click the Add New button to redirect more domains or click the trash can icon to remove a domain.

Canonical Settings – Redirect from HTTP to HTTPS

Canonical settings allow you to force an HTTPS redirection and to add or remove www from your site URL.

To redirect your site from HTTP to HTTPS, click the Canonical Settings toggle to display the Redirect from HTTP to HTTPS setting.

Then click the Redirect from HTTP to HTTPS toggle and click Save Changes to enable redirection from HTTP to HTTPS on your site.

You’ll need to update your Site Address URL by going to Settings » General and changing the Site Address (URL) match your new site address.

HTTP Headers

This option enables you to add Site headers and Redirect headers.

Site headers are added across your site, including redirects. Redirect headers are only added to redirects.

To add a Site or Redirect header, select the type in the Location drop down, then choose the header from the Header drop down and enter or select the Value.

Click the Add Header button to add more Site or Redirect headers, and click the trash can icon to delete a Site or Redirect header.

You may also add your own custom headers by selecting Custom Header in the Header drop down.
