I’m unable to configure subdomain
subdomain.maindomain.com to rewrite to
www.anotherdomain.com/path/to/page, is the
path/to/page a problem or what is it?
In the Netlify DNS I’ve added a CNAME called
subdomain with value
www.anotherdomain.com/path/to/page but it doesn’t seem to work?
You can’t include a path in a CNAME. A CNAME is only for domain (and subdomain) names.
You could, however, have a Netlify
_redirects file on your
subdomain.maindomain.com (and a placeholder index.html, perhaps) as a manually deployed site and do a 301 redirect.
Thanks that explains @danielfdickinson1, that was my backup solution indeed but I tried a “cleaner” way using the Netlify DNS. I didn’t know a path wasn’t possible.
Hmm I’m unable to get it to work this way. It works on the
netlify.app domain but not on the custom domain and the configuration is correct. I have more subdomains working like this with a branch deploy but this is the only one with a
_redirects file and that one doesn’t work as expected.
It just can’t find the website. And yes, it has an
/* https://www.domain.com/rest/of/path 301!
Alright it seemed to be a caching problem.
