    URL redirection is a World Wide Web technique for making a web page available under more than one URL address.

    Two main reasons for URL redirection.

    1. It is used for getting link juice from another URL.

    2. If a web page is deleted means, to avoid 404 error we can use URL redirection.


    Redirection is a big concept. There are so many URL redirection methods available.
    to know more use the BHW search option

    A URL redirect is a webserver function that sends a user from one URL to another. Redirects commonly take the form of an automated redirect that uses one of a series of status codes defined within the HTTP protocol.
    There are several types of redirects available to Web developers, including manual redirects, HTTP 3xx series status codes, server-side scripts, JavaScript, frame redirects and metatag refreshes.

    If you've changed website domain and want your users who would use your old URL to find your new site, then you use URL redirect. 301 Redirect is a permanent redirect and is the most common method because it is beneficial to SEO as 90% of the link juice is passed to the new site.
