There may be times when you want a URL to re-direct and open a different URL. You are able to re-direct any URL within the same domain.
Scenarios for creating re-directs:
- Perhaps the site navigation is changing and the URL for given information has shifted. A re-direct can be created so users typing in the original URL still get to the content on the updated URL.
- If you have a campaign to promote a page on the site, you can create whatever snappy URL name you want and then re-direct it to the correct page.
- If a website splinters off from a larger website redirects can be created so created pages of the original site redirect to the new site.
