What is redirection mode?

With Cloudbric, you will be able to redirect your domain to WWW or to HTTPS URL. You may watch a short clip about our redirection mode here

To do so, please log in to Cloudbric and go to Settings page. At the right bottom, you will see "Redirection Mode".

HTTP to HTTPS

Cloudbric will force HTTP traffic to HTTPS when you turn on the feature. Since Cloudbric provides free SSL certificates, you can automatically redirect visitors to HTTPS version of your website to make sure their communication is encrypted. Please note that if you chose HTTP connection only (None SSL mode), then do not turn on HTTP to HTTPS redirection mode.

Example: cloudbric.com -> https://cloudbric.com 

 

Non-WWW to WWW

Cloudbric will force Non-WWW traffic to WWW when you turn on the feature. By redirecting to one to another, you will have more control in terms of search results. Search engines consider Non-WWW and WWW URLs as two different websites. Please note that there will be no "Non-WWW to WWW" option for sub domains. 

Example: cloudbric.com -> www.cloudbric.com

 

But before you turn on Redirection Mode...

First, make sure that your website is up and running normally when you type the “https://” in front of your domain name. Google Chrome, Internet Explorer, and Firefox block mixed content (when initial resources are loaded in HTTPS but other resources like scripts or stylesheets are loaded over HTTP). With mixed content, your website can look broken to users. 


Second, this mode on the Cloudbric dashboard is only for users who are using a SSL certificate. If you aren’t using SSL and prefer HTTP connection only, make sure that Redirection Mode is turned OFF, or face potential errors to your website.
