The primary url in Flywheel is the main url that your site is accessible by. You can add as many urls as you would like, but each of them will 301 redirect to the primary url.
You can view and change your primary url in the “Domains” box for a site in the Flywheel control panel. The primary url is denoted with a blue PRIMARY box, and you can modify its settings from the drop down menu:
Once you’ve marked a domain as primary, the redirect should take effect right away. However, due to the nation of browser caching, you might need to close your browser in order to see the change (i.e. your browser might be caching the previous url). A hard refresh and/or restarting the browser usually alleviates this.
If you have any questions on urls, DNS, domains or anything else, shoot Flywheel support a note and we’ll help you out.
