Comment (by Ian Hinder):

 Really, we should get to the bottom of what's going on with the existing
 simfactory.org website.  Someone at CCT must know something about this?
 Or Erik?

 The redirect you mentioned would be ugly, as the user would go to
 simfactory.org and be redirected to simfactory.bitbucket.io, and then
 continue to see that URL.  Better would be to point the DNS entry at that
 site using a CNAME record.  Unfortunately, unlike github, for which this
 works perfectly, bitbucket does not support this, and has no plans to
 support it (see https://bitbucket.org/site/master/issues/11257/support-
 custom-domains-cname-for-static).  Another option for static hosting that
 I have used is netlify.  This will create a static website for free based
 on a git repo (both github and bitbucket are supported), and I have used
 them before.  I just tried it out with the simfactory.bitbucket.io repo,
 and the result can be seen at at https://stupefied-sinoussi-
 ff89d6.netlify.com/simfactory2/userguide.  They use randomly-generated
 site names by default.  It took about a minute to set up.    However, they
 support CNAMEs, so you can repoint a domain to point at their site. They
 also support TLS via LetsEncrypt.  I have used both these features and
 have had no problems with them.
