Hi. for example I have the URL https://domainname.com.au/blogs/category-name/how-to-make-nice-photo-frame 

 

I want that the blog post is also available with https://domainname.com/photoframe

 

How do i do that? within shopify? or i create on namecheap (where my domain is hosted) a redirect?

Option 1: Shopify URL Redirect

Since your store is on Shopify, you can utilize Shopify’s built-in URL redirect feature. This is an easy way to manage redirects without needing to access your domain registrar or DNS settings. Here’s how to do it:

  1. Log in to your Shopify Admin Panel.
  2. Navigate to Online Store: From the left sidebar, click on ‘Online Store’ and then select ‘Navigation’ from the dropdown menu.
  3. Go to URL Redirects: Within the Navigation page, you’ll find a tab or link to ‘URL Redirects’. Click on it.
  4. Add URL Redirect: Click on ‘Create URL redirect’.
  5. Configure your Redirect:
  6. Save the Redirect: After entering the details, click on ‘Save’ or ‘Add redirect’.

This is the correct approach. @kiwi8 - be aware that the URL will change when someone hits the URL that you are redirecting.

In summary - you can create a redirect URL that looks great for marketing material, distribution etc., but when someone goes to it they will be redirected to the original URL
