What is URL Forwarding
The free URL Forwarding or URL Redirection is used in many situations and for various reasons. This technique allows you to open one page via different URL addresses pointing to that page.
Sometimes URL Redirection is used when web pages are moved or their URLs need to be changed – this helps you to avoid broken links and losing your traffic on these pages. URL redirects are also used for the shortening of links (commonly used in sites like Twitter) or for privacy reasons. URL Forwarding is particularly useful if you have more domains and web pages. Utilizing URL Forwarding to redirect various URLs to a single website could significantly help you boost your traffic. URL Redirection is also used for similar domain names and domains that could be mistyped by users. For example: hosting.com might be accidentally written as hotsing.com. For that reason free URL forwarding is often used to redirect these “wrong” URLs to the original URL address. Very frequently redirects are used to redirect URL addresses not including the www. of a website (zettahost.com to www.zettahost.com). URL Forwarding is almost always necessary when you change your domain name or move pages on your website. This will prevent users and search engines as well from visiting the outdated links.
