Connecting Multiple Domains to One Strikingly Site

Whether you bought your domain from Strikingly or from another registrar, you can't connect multiple domains to one site. However, you can redirect one of your domains to another one of your domains.

For example, if you want everyone who visits abc.com to go to xyz.com, or to go from abc.com to abc.com.au, you can set up "URL forwarding" for the secondary domain.

 

 

 

Step 1 Decide which one is your main domain, which is the secondary domain. 

Main domain - this is the one you want your users to end up with as the end.

 

Step 2 Connecting your main domain to your Strikingly site.

 

Step 3 Set up your secondary forwarding

1. Sign in to your secondary domain's registrar. For example, Godaddy, NameCheap, etc. 

2. Look for "Domain forwarding" or "URL forwarding" settings.

3. Set up the following:

  • Alias/Host/Name: @
  • Forward Type: Permanent (301)
  • Forwarded to/Redirects to: http://www.yourmaindomain.com (this URL is just an example, please change it to your main domain).

4. If you also want to have www.secondarydomain.com forward to your main domain., then set up the following: 

  • Alias/Host/Name: www
  • Forward Type: Permanent (301)
  • Forwarded to/Redirects to: http://www.yourmaindomain.com (this URL is just an example, please change it to your main domain).

Note: make sure not to mask or use "masked forwarding". This creates many mobile and SEO issues.

 

Step 4 Wait for the records to take effect

Please allow a few up to 48 hours for the changes in the domain records to take effect globally.

 

If your secondary domains don't forward to your main domain, contact us at support@strikingly.com or chat with us and include a screenshot of both domain settings so we can help!
