We are implementing changes on our default subdomain. Currently, the default subdomain format is http://site-xxx-xxx-xxx.strikingly.com. On the new system, the new subdomain format will be http://site-xxx-xxx-xxx.mystrikingly.com.
This change will take effect on Sunday, July 28, 2019 at 9 p.m. PST.
Do I need to do anything on my end?
You don't have to do anything. We will create an automatic redirection so anyone who tries to open your website using your Strikingly subdomain (ex: http://mysite.strikingly.com) will be automatically redirected to the new URL (ex: http://mysite.mystrikingly.com).
Will my site go down during the transition?
No. Your site should not go down during the transition.
Will this change affect my custom domain?
No. If you have a custom domain (ie, www.yourdomain.com) connected to your website, this should not affect you.
What will happen to my site statistics?
We will transfer your site's statistics.
Google has already indexed my site. Will this affect my site's SEO?
It should not affect your site's SEO. We have a system in place that will transfer your SEO juice to your new site URL.
I have already printed my site URL on my business card. What will happen?
No worries! Anyone who tries to access your printed URL will be immediately redirected to the new URL. For instance, if you have http://mysite.strikingly.com printed on your business card, anyone who tries to access it will be automatically redirected to http://mysite.mystrikingly.com.
If I create a new website after this system is released, what default URL will it have?
All new websites after the release will have the new format: yoursite.mystrikingly.com.
