URL Redirect (also referred to as URL Forwarding) is a technique which is used to redirect your domain's visitors to a different URL. You can forward your domain name to any website, webpage, etc. which is available online.
Redirects use status codes defined within the HTTP protocol.
If you would like to set the wildcard subdomain that lets you forward all subdomains that have not been created to a page on your website or to any other page on the Web, you may refer to this tutorial.
This type of redirect will also work if someone enters a non-existent or mistyped subdomain.
Sometimes, you need to redirect your visitors from one domain or link to another but which redirect option to choose?
URL Redirect 301 is a permanent type of unmasked redirect. It should be used if your website was permanently moved to the new address and you want it to be indexed by search engines (all traffic and existing SEO value will be routed to the destination URL). It is considered to be the most efficient and search engine-friendly method for webpage redirection.
- You're merging two websites and want to make sure that links to outdated URLs are redirected to the correct pages.
Please note that when moving a page from one URL to another, the search engines will take some time to discover the 301, recognize it and credit the new page with the rankings and trust of its predecessor. This process can be lengthier if search engine spiders rarely visit the given web page, or if the new URL doesn't properly resolve.
