DotNetNuke as domain homepage w/o redirect?
pillbug22 said 1 year ago:
I see DNN cannot be installed in the hosting root and must be installed to a sub-folder. Right now I have my index page doing a header/HTTP redirect (time of 0) to the DNN folder, but it still takes several seconds where index page is displayed. After the welcom page appears to be recently cached, the time is reduced to a second or 2, but still noticable.
Is there a better way to get the domain to redirect to the DNN folder, or do I just strip everything out of the welcome page so it is blank until the redirect is complete?
If the redirect has to be done this way, does this have any affect on SEO (not having “real” data at the URL root)?

There are several different ways to redirect your domain from the root to a subfolder. One option is a meta refresh which it sounds like you are doing now. You can remove all of the coding so that only the meta redirect is present so that is simply redirects without anything appearing while the redirect occurs. You can also use other redirect options as outlined in the following link:
