What is the difference between URL Redirect (301) and regular redirect?

URL Redirect 301 is a permanent type of redirect. It should be used if your webpage has been permanently moved to a 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.

Regular URL Redirect (302) is a temporary type of redirect. It should be used if a certain URL has been changed to a different address temporarily (during a website’s maintenance, for example). Search engines will index the original URL and not the destination URL and will continue to display the original URL in search results.

Both redirect types are available for domains using our default nameservers and hosting plans.
