Also known as URL forwarding, a redirect URL is a commonly-used technique to display an existing webpage available under one or more URL addresses. There are many types of redirects, but the commonly used ones are 301 and 302.
So, what is a 301 redirect? And, what is the difference between 301 and 302 redirects?
Technically, 301 is a permanent-redirections status code, meaning that the webpage under this URL has moved to a different URL address permanently. 302 means found. It means that the webpage is available, but it is temporarily somewhere else.
