Forwarding domains to webflow.io site -fixed-

Hello all,

I want to forward one of my domain to my webflow.io page. Did a 301 redirect on the serverside, and it directs it to the webflow.io site but the error message is Webflow refused to connect.

my domain is; http://bookserf.com/
desired location is: https://bookserf.webflow.io/

I have other hosted sites on webflow and I know how to do it on hosted plan, but for this website I’d like to keep using free cms features in the beginning.

I just wanted to make sure if this kind of directing possible?
I don’t want to mask domain name, just literally forwarding users to the free weblow site.

Any suggestions would be great,
Thanks

@erbils I am having the exact same issue on two sites… set up 301 redirects to Webflow hosted domains (.com to .co.uk) and im getting the same error message!!!

Something seems wrong with your nginx config (or whatever interface you used to define the redirect)

When I run curl -I http://bookserf.com/ I don’t get a 301 redirect to bookserf.webflow.io. I get a 503 error with a HTML page with a frameset that is trying to encapsulate your free bookserf.webflow.io page.

<html><head><meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width,initial-scale=1"></head>
<frameset border="0" rows="100%,*" cols="100%"
frameborder="no"><frame name="TopFrame"
scrolling="yes" noresize src="https://bookserf.webflow.io"><frame name="BottomFrame" scrolling="no"
noresize><noframes></noframes></frameset></html>

Most likely, Webflow blocks its free webflow.io sites from being embedded like this in a frame. That’s probably why you are seeing “refused to connect”.

But, if you use a real 301 redirect, it works. Bitly uses a 301 and it works with your site: https://bit.ly/399bwnD

@tommyboy82 , your redirects are also not configured properly. curl -I https://www.petrichorproperty.com returns a 403 error.

Hi @JudoHacker thanks for taking the time to have a look at my issue… my colleague had taken off the 301 direct and tried to use CNAME to point the domain which clearly didn’t work either!! I have just reset up the 301 I previously had! I’m not trying to redirect to a webflow.io free site!
