Can I use web redirection and "cloaking"?

URL Redirection allows you to alias your long, hard-to-remember, URLs to your short hostname. This enables you to have a simple and easy to remember Web address. We utilize 301 redirects, it is the most efficient and Search Engine Friendly method for URL redirection

  • Standard URL Redirection

This type of redirection your URL will change in the browser. This is the most search engine friendly and allows for bookmarking of pages.

  • Cloaked URL Redirection

This type of redirection your URL will not change in the browser. The destination page will be loaded in a frame and will not change as users navigate through your site and even away from you site.


A few features that you can take advantage of with URL Redirection.

  1. testing.com => http://test.com
  2. testing.com => http://test.com/
  3. testing.com => http://test.com/test.html

In example 1 the path will be passed to the destination URL

testing.com/testing.html becomes http://test.com/testing.html

In example 2 the path will be not passed to the destination URL

testing.com/testing.html becomes http://test.com/

In example 3 the path will replaced with the destination URL

testing.com/testing.html becomes http://test.com/test.html
