The Domain Settings page is where you manage your community site's domains, the microsite paths that are associated with the domains, and your organization's digital certificates. You can add domains and certificates to ensure secure transactions across your community site. There are also two pages that list 1) which domains are assigned to each microsite path and 2) which certificate is assigned to each domain.
Redirects are independent of domains and certificates; they enable you to automatically redirect site traffic away from that site to a more secure one. For added security, the redirect occurs behind the scenes; the visitor never knows it has happened.
Use these list pages to manage your community site's domains, certificates, and redirects.
NOTE: There's more to learn about domains and certificates and the role they play in your community environment. Check out Set Up HTTPS / SSL and Higher Logic Community CNAME/DNS Instructions to gain a better understanding of how these settings work with domains, certificates, and redirects.
