Point/Forward/Redirect a domain to a different subdomain

Recommended Posts

Site URL: http://www.biruvia.com

Hello,

I have what I thought should be a fairly easy task, but I can't find anything in the forwarding/pointing/redirecting articles in square space that covers this specifically. Here is what I'd like to do:

Point/Forward/Redirect "swamimosa.com" to "biruvia.com/swamimosa"

Both domains are managed through Squarespace and the website "biruvia.com" is hosted through Squarespace. I've gone into advanced settings for "swamimosa.com" and followed the instructions for adding a preset for "Forward Domain." I then add the URL "biruvia.com/swamimosa", but the website doesn't forward.

If I set the Forward Domain from "swamimosa.com" to "biruvia.com" it does work, but I want to forward to a subdomain instead of a domain. How can I do this? 

Thanks!

Thank you for the reply Derrick. That example shows how to point a page/subdomain to another page/subdomain. However, what I'm looking to do is point the entire domain to a page/subdomain of another site. All are managed or hosted on Squarespace. The domain I am pointing/redirecting from is just a domain and not a website.

This is what I'm looking for in effect:

www.websiteone.com ----> www.websitetwo.com/one

Is this possible?

You can add this code to Home > Settings > Advanced > Code Injection > Footer

<script>
         setTimeout(function(){
            window.location.href = 'https://beaverhero.com';
         }, 1000);
</script>

replace beaverhero with new site url

Actually the instructions above do include how to forward from one domain to another: 

Oher domains

Use a 301 redirect if you have a URL on your site that you want to lead to another domain.

Example, you had a page with the URL https://mybusiness.com/fundraiser that featured information about a fundraiser, but now you want the URL to link visitors directly to an external domain.

Follow these steps:

  1. In URL Mappings, create a redirect from /fundraiser to the external domain.
  2. Delete or disable the /fundraiser page in your site.

The redirect looks like this example:

/fundraiser -> https://fundraiser.com/very-special-fundraiser 301   replace with whatever domain you want.
