Fore those not familiar, a 301 redirect is a special “header” code for web browsers that forces a page (or entire domain) to permanently redirect to a new location (URL). 301 redirects are extremely important for usability, organization, and SEO purposes as well. If you are looking to redirect a single post/page to a new location, there are a few options. Firstly it is important to know that usually WordPress automatically redirects to the new location if your are “editing” a post and have changed its “slug” URL. However, in certain cases this may not work properly or for better stability you may wish to implement this using a 3rd party plugin such as Simple 301 Redirects.
We offer a free domain redirect service for TLD level redirects i.e. example.com >> example.net
We limit this free service to around 5 domains per account, meaning not more than 5 domains should 301 in our CloudFlare to any given “live” website we host.
However for any subdirectory, page-level, or sub-TLD redirects we recommend a free WordPress plugin such as Simple 301 Redirects.
For TLD directs:
1. activate the CloudFlare nameservers
2. put all the 301 rules in your new site using a 301 plugin
3. double check all pages on Google i.e. search “site:mydomain.com”
4. let us know to “activate” the site-wide 301 redirect from old domain to new domain on CloudFlare
"After being hosted on GoDaddy for years, I didn't realize how negatively it was impacting my search traffic. Soon after moving to LittleBizzy, my homepage went from page 3 on Google to #1 world-wide for my target market, and I also reached the top 3 on Google Maps, with no additional SEO work."Juliette S.
"Before moving to LittleBizzy, whenever our news website was featured on the Drudge Report, it often slowed to a crawl or even froze up during big traffic spikes. Now, that never happens anymore, and we've been able to focus on publishing more articles instead of worrying about our web hosting."Steve G.
"The research by Amazon is definitely true, because our slow WooCommerce store was bleeding sales. After LittleBizzy stabilized our performance and moved us closer to our target customers, we saw a measurable improvement in shopping cart checkouts, esp. during holidays... much better!"Mohammed H.
