How to redirect the root page of my domain to a landing page

How do I set up a redirect so that all traffic to the root of my sub-domain goes to a specific landing page (without effecting any of the other landing pages)?

Hi @howardwebatomic, it is pretty easy, simply select the subdomain and leave the rest in blank

Hi @6cmarketing thanks for the reply, but I don’t think this is what I am looking for. Let me explain.

I have my subdomain set up as https://foo.domain.com/

I have multiple landing pages such as
https://foo.domain.com/lp1
https://foo.domain.com/lp2
https://foo.domain.com/lp3
etc…

What I am trying to achieve is if someone visits https://foo.domain.com/ (by removing the end of the landing page URL) they would automatically be redirected to a specific page. Ideally I would like https://foo.domain.com/ to be redirected to https://www.domain.com/ (which is not an Unbounce page)

If this is not possible then https://foo.domain.com/ redirecting to https://foo.domain.com/lp1 would be OK

Is the only way to do this to create a blank landing page with a blank (root) URL and add a javascript redirection script into the head? Or is there some functionality within Unbounce that would achieve the same result?

Try this script:

$(location).attr('href', 'https://foo.domain.com/lp1')

Note: I don’t think you can do this with a PPC campaign because of Google’s Redirect Policy

If you’re interested in an instant redirect I would recommend using plain javascript:
// Simulate an HTTP redirect:
window.location.replace("https://foo.domain.com/lp1?ref=root");

this way you s(h)ave a few more milliseconds of jQuery downloading time

  • adding the ?ref=root url param will allow you to track how many people have actually used this path over time. example: hello.pumpkin.care
