Domains

When you purchase an ESP Website or Company Store, the domain provided will end in ".espwebsite.com" (for ESP Websites) and ".logoshop.com" (for Company Stores). All domains provided within the ESP Websites admin have an SSL certificate. To add an espwebsite or logoshop domain, click on the Add Domain button.

If you have a custom domain name, you are able to redirect it to your ESP Website or Company Store.

To add a domain name, click on the "Add New ESP Website Address or Custom Domain" button. Then, type your new domain name into the field and click on the Save button.

If you have multiple domains which point to the same page, unless a specific URL is designated as the default page, Google will select which URL to display in search queries, which can affect the SEO for your site. For example, if you had two URLs for your site: www.companypage.com/espwebsite and www.companypage.espwebsite.com, but do not specify a default page, Google will toggle between the two URLs, meaning that the SEO traffic for your site will be split and proper weight will not be applied to ranking. By select a default, Google will be directed into a single URL, allowing for proper identification of your site for SEO purposes.

Redirect Your Domain

If you have selected to use a custom domain, you do not need to type "www." Just type the domain name – for example: ABCpromo.com.

You will need to set up a redirect to point your custom domain to your ESP Website. Contact your domain host (GoDaddy, Network Solutions, etc.) and have them redirect the domain name by pointing the A record to the provided IP address (199.0.184.165). You can redirect up to four (4) domain names.

Also in the Domains section, you can purchase an SSL Certificate for your custom domain.

301 Redirects

Using 301 redirects is important for ensuring the SEO ranking information for pages is maintained when moving pages from an old site to your new ESP Website. By using 301 redirects; rather than just recreating the page information on your ESP Website, the SEO weight and Google ranking for the web page will be preserved.

To establish a 301 redirect, log into the ESP Websites Admin and click on Edit Site for the ESP Website or Company Store. Go to the Websites Settings section and select 301 Redirects.

To enter a 301 Redirect, click on the Add Redirect button and type the original page URL and the new page URL.

If you have a large amount of pages to redirect, you can use the Import File button. Before importing the .csv file, it is important to ensure that the information is in the optimal format. In the file, Column A should list the old page's URL extension in this format: "\oldpageextensionname". Do not include the full URL or ending (ex: .html, .asp, etc). Column B should list the page name from the ESP Website or Company Store in the same format. Do not include column headers.

Once you have finished preparing the file, click on the Import File button. Browse your computer to locate the file, select it, and then click on the Open button. Then, click on Import. The newly imported 301 redirects will be listed.
