More About 301 Redirects
A 301 redirect can be implemented permanently or temporarily, depending on your needs.
There are several reasons you may want to utilize a redirect, including:
1. You moved your website to a new URL or you merged two websites, and you want to ensure a smooth transition.
2. Your website can be accessed via multiple URLs, and you want to select one as the preferred destination. For example, your homepage may be reached through http://example.com/home and http://example.domain.com.
3. You have removed a page and would like to redirect visitors to another one.
4. One or more of your pages are under construction, and you want to send users to another page temporarily.
