Redirects to temporary domain

  • I am rebuilding our website from scratch on a temporary domain that we are using as a staging site. Our website is actually live now, but we are completely changing the structure and taxonomy, so there will be LOTS of redirects.

    I have imported the redirects I had already from Yoast, and there are quite a few. But I’m already confused about those. For instance, in Yoast, it is:
    /checkout.html to /checkout

    But after importing into the temporary staging site, the redirect says:
    /checkout.html to https://domain-hg.local/checkout

    And every new redirect I put in, I can’t use an internal link as the destination. I can only use an internal link as the source. For instance:
    /shop to https://tempdomain.com/globes-shop
    It will not let me do:
    /shop to /globes-shop

    Does this mean that once we launch, I will need to manually change each https://domain-hg.local and https://tempdomain.com to the real domain for the redirects to work?

  • Hello,

    Thank you for contacting Rank Math today.

    No, Rank Math is just adding your current website domain to the display of the destination but if you change the domain in WordPress, Rank Math should automatically change it. Anyway, if you have any issues, we will be here to help you.

    Looking forward to helping you. Thank you.
