Redirections

Introduction#

As a merchant, you might be creating a website, and then sharing links of your products, collections, deals, marketing pages, and more with your target customers. If you have spent money on advertisements that link directly to a URL on your website, you may never want to lose or change the URL.

However, Fynd Platform allows you to redirect visitors from an old URL to a new URL. It allows you to redirect domains as well as redirect paths. Moreover, this redirection feature works for both predefined domains and custom domains.

How to access on Fynd Platform

Scenarios of redirection#

  • Domain Redirection
    • Redirect a custom domain to another custom domain on Fynd Platform
      Example: mytestshop.com → newshop.com
    • Redirect a predefined domain to a custom domain on Fynd Platform
      Example: sale.fynd.io → newshop.com
    • Redirect a custom domain to a predefined domain on Fynd Platform
      Example: mytestshop.com → sale.fynd.io
    • Redirect a predefined domain to another predefined domain on the same saleschannel of Fynd Platform
      Example: deal.fynd.io → sale.fynd.io
  • Path Redirection
    • Redirect a path from a previous custom domain to a path on the same custom domain on Fynd Platform
      Example: /data/products/ → /products (on mytestshop.com)
    • Redirect a path from a predefined domain to a path on the same predefined domain on Fynd Platform
      Example: /data/products/ → /products (on sale.fynd.io)
tip

By using both path and domain redirection in conjunction, you can redirect an old custom/prefined domain having old path, to a new custom/predefined domain having new path. Example: mytestshop.com/data/products/ → sale.fynd.io/products/

info

You can readily use predefined domains such as fynd.io and fyndstore.co for redirections, as you don't have the option to change the A records or TXT records. For any operation with custom domains, you have to link the domain to your Fynd Platform account by configuring A records and TXT record in your domain provider account.
