When your fully qualified domain name (
www.example.com) makes a 301 (or 302) redirect to the root domain nome (
example.com), users who try to load
www.example.com will load
example.com and will not benefit from the optimized version of the site.
In this case, the pages are not optimized by Fasterize. Indeed, Fasterize does not work completely on root domains .
To take advantage of the Fasterize service, you must remove this 301 redirect.
Removing 301 redirection on the main WEB server
Here are some tips to remove this redirection in the most popular web server:
- Apache : edit your file
.htaccess, and look for the string "301". Delete the corresponding line after verifying that it matches the desired redirection.
- WordPress : if you have a redirection plugin, consult the documentation associated with your plugin. Otherwise, edit your .htaccess file, and look for the string "301". Delete the corresponding line after verifying that it matches the desired redirection.
- PHP : Find and delete the following lines of your code:
Header ("HTTP/1.1 301 Moved Permanently"); Header ("Location: http://example.com");Note: Replace
http://example.comwith your domain name.
- IIS : In Internet Services Manager , right-click the file or directory of the fully qualified domain name. Check the box A directory located on this computer
