What URL Redirect means?

URL Redirection is a technique that can be used to make a web page available under many URLs. This is also known as URL forwarding, domain forwarding or domain redirection.

Why redirection is needed? There may be several reasons for webmasters to use URL redirection. A few are listed below:

  • Often users mistype wrong URL in web browsers like: instead of typing "google.com" they type in "gooogle.com" etc. So corporations often register these "misspelled" domains and redirect them to the correct location. This helps them in protecting their potential customers to loose track.
  • Two or more websites might merge and want to keep a single entry point.
  • A website might need to change its domain name.
  • The owner might move his/her website to a new server or location.
