Add either an apex domain or
www.subdomain to your Gatsby Hosting configuration. You can read more about adding a domain in Adding a Custom Domain.
You should see a redirect pair of domains with the domain you entered as a primary domain.
Follow the directions for adding DNS records for both of the domains that are listed. The apex domain will need an A Record pointed to an IP address and the subdomain will need a CNAME pointed at your Gatsby Hosting default URL,
Switching the Redirect
If you want the redirected domain to be the primary domain, click the "Make Primary" button on the right-hand side of the domain listing.
Removing a Domain from a Redirect
To remove a domain from the redirect, click "Remove" on the right-hand side of the domain listing. The remaining domain will act as a non-redirected domain, regardless of whether it was the primary domain or not.
If you re-add the domain you just removed, both domains will act as primary domains without a redirect. If you need to re-add the redirect, remove both domains and start over.
Adding gatsbyjs.io Domain to a Redirect
Gatsby Cloud now allows you to redirect your gatsbyjs.io domain to your primary domain. This ensures that search engines don't index the gatsbyjs.io domain. To do this:
- Next to where your gatsbyjs.io is listed, Select Primary Redirect.
- Select a Primary domain:
All gatsbyjs.io domains will 301 redirect to the primary domain that you select.
