Cloudflare Domain Redirect

Tech Feb 02, 2020

I have been using my old domain for almost 3 years now and I decided to move to a new domain. My old domain - ishanbadgainya.com was long, difficult to read and was poor performing with SEO. So I chose a new shorter sounding domain name - ishaanx.com

The real problem here was how to remove my old domain from every search crawler out there and move existing traffic to the new domain. I have been using Cloudflare since the beginning of era and it made the solution simple enough.

Redirecting domains is very easy in Cloudflare. Let's say you have two domains

  • https://domain1.com (Old domain)
  • https://domain2.com (New domain)

And you want to redirect all traffic from domain1  to domain2, including the traffic of subpages. For ex:

domain1.com > domain2.com
domain1.com/page1 > domain2.com/page1
domain1.com/page2 > domain2.com/page2
abc.domain1.com > abc.domain2.com
