A preferred domain is the version of your domain that you would like your visitors to land on.
i.e www.example.com and example.com are two different versions of your domain. Setting the preferred domain to www.example.com will ensure all traffic from both example.com and www.example.com will go to www.example.com.
Set your preferred domain
- Head to your site settings.
- When a custom domain is properly set up using the recommended method , the Preferred URL section will be Green and selectable.
- Within the custom domain tab you will find a Preferred URL section.
- Select the version of your domain you would like your traffic to directed to.
If you are using the Alternative method (Cloudflare) your Preferred domain will need to be set to www. to ensure it properly connects.
