    URL Redirection

    (Page 1 of 4 )

    What is URL redirection and what does it have to do with your web site? What's more, is it something you might want to use? These questions and others will be answered in this article. So keep reading to become enlightened.

    Known by many names, URL redirection is a technique used to make a web page accessible to users via multiple domains. There are several reasons to do this, not all of which are on the up and up. In this tutorial, we will look at each one, and in our next (eventual) article, learn the various methods used to achieve this effect. 

    You may have heard URL redirection referred to as URL forwarding, domain forwarding, and domain redirecting. Whatever name you decide to use, below you will find a list of reasons why you may wish to do so. A brief note: where possible I will point out the nefarious reasons and methods, with the understanding that I strongly advise against using them. I only include them here for completeness, and to ensure that they are not used unwittingly.
