Lori9932,

I am sorry but you are not able to specify a 301 redirect on Homestead. What is it you want to do? Maybe we have another way.

I deleted a page and want to redirect it to the home page

The only way to do that on our system is to create a blank white page with the name and use an HTML redirect to send to the homepage. I assume the page ranks well for something, but you no longer need that page itself?

It's not ideal, but the redirect isn't too bad for Google. In fact, if you use Google tracking code, Google recommends that you place the code on the redirecting page as well. It's a better solution than just cutting off the ranking page. Google will eventually reindex and that page will beging to lose ranking.

Add the redirect code to the page in an HTML box.
