Redirect settings

Redirect type

  • Permanent (301)
    301 redirects are the default option. When using a 301, you're actually saying: this page has been moved permanently to X. With 301, you will move the SEO ranking of that page to the new destination.
  • Temporary (302)
    With 302 redirects, you're actually saying: this page has been moved temporarily to X and it might be changed in the future. 
  • Frame
    With our frame option, your destination is 'iframed' on your source domain. This will show the original domain in the browser, but will load the destination via the frame. We don't recommend using this option, as SEO ranking is impacted and the user experience isn't great (the path for instance doesn't change on navigation).

URI Forwarding

When URI forwarding is enabled, the path is kept when redirecting to the destination.

Example:
Source: example.com
Destination: destination.com
URI Forwarding: Yes

A request comes in on 'example.com/contact'. With URI Forwarding, this means it's redirected to 'destination.com/contact'. 

You may use this with 'keep parameters' to redirect both the path & the query string.

Keep parameters

When Keep parameters is enabled, the query string is kept when redirecting to the destination.

Example:
Source: example.com
Destination: destination.com
Keep parameters: Yes

A request comes in on 'example.com?page=342'. With keep parameters enabled, this means it's redirected to 'destination.com?page=342'. 

You may use this with 'URI forwarding' to redirect both the path & the query string.

Example 2
Source: example.com
Destination: destination.com?ref=redirected
Keep parameters: Yes

A request comes in on 'example.com?page=342'. With keep parameters enabled, this means it's redirected to 'destination.com?page=342&ref=redirected'. Note that the query string of the destination and the incoming request is merged together. The incoming source parameters have a higher preference than the parameters of the destination.

Tracking

When tracking is enabled, this means that analytical data will be saved of the incoming traffic. This data is used for your redirect analytics. When disabled, only the datetime & URL is tracked so we can keep count of the amount of hits for your account. Do note, no data is sold or used anywhere else!
