The step-by-step guide to create a domain redirect with Cloudflare

Redirecting a whole domain using Cloudflare can be useful but isn’t documented anywhere, here’s how to do it.


  • Be logged into your dashboard.
  1. Select the domain you want to redirect from

  2. Go to page rules

  3. Click “Create page rule”

  4. Enter your.domain/* (matches all traffic) for which URLs will have their traffic redirected

  5. Click “Add a Setting”

  6. Select “Forwarding URL”

  7. Select the type of redirect, I recommend 302s since they’re less aggressively cached (so if you ever want to use that domain to do something else other than redirect, you can)

  8. Enter your forwarding URL

  9. Click “Save and Deploy”

You’re done, you’ve just created a redirect from your domain to another one 🙂
