Updating your domain's DNS

In order to launch a redirect, you must update the DNS of your domain/subdomain to point to SiteDetour.

Overview

In order for SiteDetour to process your redirects, you would need to update your domain's DNS to the instructions provided in the admin dashboard. This instruction varies depending on whether you're redirecting a naked domain vs a subdomain. Naked domains require you to setup an A record vs CNAME records for subdomains. Once proper DNS records are in place, SiteDetour will automatically start processing your redirects per your configured rules.

Getting the DNS Instruction

In order to get the DNS instructions for your domain, simply login to your account and set up a New Redirect. Once you have successfully setup your redirect simply click on the DNS instructions on your redirect page as shown in the screenshot below.
