Redirecting full path from subdomain?

Hey guys,

Trying to move our WP blog to Webflow! (And switching from subdomain to root domain)

I know I can’t access the .htaccess file for webflow hosting, so I’m curious if anybody has any creative ideas for how to forward a full URL path?

For example:
blog.example.com/about
Redirect to:
example.com/about

It doesn’t seem to be something I can do with the 301 redirect in Webflow because we’re redirecting from a subdomain. (blog.example.com)

Thanks for your input!

Hi @eric594

What you can do is:

  1. point your subdomain (CNAME) to proxy-ssl.webflow.com
  2. add your subdomain to your custom domains list in Webflow
  3. Set your www domain as your default domain

Hope this helps :slight_smile:

Hi @PixelGeek - is this still the best method to do redirects from WordPress sites (or anything outside Webflow)?

If we follow your 3 steps above, do we then add redirects as we normally would within Webflow’s Project Settings > “Hosting” tab?

Is it also possible to redirect something like this?

subdomain.oldwebsite.com/pagename
Redirect to:
newwebflowsite.com/about-us

@eric594 - did you have success with this, and did you happen to keep notes on what you did? Thanks!

This is what we have planned:

Add 301 redirects from (blog.)botanicalcraft.com/ > https://botanicalcraft.com/blog/ in Webflow for all blog pages. (will forward once we point blog.botanicalcraft.com to proxy-ssl.webflow.com)

Awesome, thanks very much! Much appreciated @eric594
