Redirecting a website URL to a Google doc
April 26, 2014 10:34 AM   Subscribe

Our organization uses a Google form to sign up new members. I want to set up our website so that redirects to that Google doc. Is this possible? What is this functionality called? How do you go about setting it up?

Does the URL need to stay as that while they're filling it out? If so, you'll want some kind of embed. If not, a simple HTML redirect on an empty page would work.

How to redirect from an HTML page

Check out this page for embedding info. Just copy / paste the code to your join.htm page. Read all the comments because there is some important info about permission settings so everyone can view the form.

301 server redirect?

What kind of webserver do you have (you would get this from whomever hosts or administers your website). Possible answers include Apache, nginx, Microsoft Internet Information Server (IIS).

A server side redirect is most appropriate for this task, but it's accomplished in different ways depending on the server.
