    Default Re: what is What Is Url Redirect?

    URL redirection, also called URL forwarding, is a World Wide Web technique for making a web page available under more than one URL address. When a web browser attempts to open a URL that has been redirected, a page with a different URL is opened. Similarly, domain redirection or domain forwarding is when all pages in a URL domain are redirected to a different domain, as when wikipedia.com and wikipedia.net are automatically redirected to wikipedia.org.

    URL redirection is done for various reasons: for URL shortening; to prevent broken links when web pages are moved; to allow multiple domain names belonging to the same owner to refer to a single web site; to guide navigation into and out of a website; for privacy protection; and for hostile purposes such as phishing attacks or malware distribution.

    URL redirection is an extremely useful service aimed at helping users point their domains or subdomains to certain URLs when necessary. This is usually needed in cases when a certain website is no longer available under its original domain name when all users linking to it need to be automatically informed of this update. Thus, the URL redirection functionality helps domain owners preserve the relevance of the incoming links to their websites.
