Redirect to Traditional Domain

Modified on: Fri, 22 Oct, 2021 at 2:29 PM


In order to set up a redirection to a traditional domain, you will need to do a redirection via index.html on your NFT Domain so users are sent to a traditional domain. 


  • On your computer, open a text editing software (for example: Notepad for Windows or TextEdit for Mac) and paste the following code.


<!DOCTYPE html>

<html>

<head>

<title>HTML Meta Tag</title>

<meta http-equiv = "refresh" content = "1; url = YOUR WEBSITE URL HERE" />

</head>

<body>

<p>YOUR WEBSITE DESCRIPTION HERE </p>

</body>

</html>






  • Replace YOUR WEBSITE HERE with your URL (make sure to include "http://" or "https://" as respectively" and YOUR WEBSITE DESCRIPTION HERE with a short description of your website and save the file as index.html (do not use any other name).

    • Mac OS users using TextEdit should go to Preferences and select Plain text instead of Rich text. A restart of the application is necessary for the changes to take effect.



  • Please note: Now would also be a good time to open index.html from your hard drive to see if everything is working before proceeding. Right-click the file and select "Open with" followed by your browser of choice.


  • Go to the My Domains section of our website, click Manage over the domain you wish to redirect, and click the Website tab.


  • Scroll down to Upload Files to IPFS and click Upload.



  • Browse for the index.html file and confirm.


  • Scroll down further and click Confirm Changes.
