A composable website traffic management system
redirection.io lets you create rules, that will apply to your website traffic.
Each rule is made of two parts:
Triggersdefine when the rule has to be executed
- Request URL, scheme, domain, path
"When the contact form is POST'ed, redirect to the thank-you page"
Presence, absence, value of a request HTTP header
"If the device is an iPhone or an iPad, then redirect to the Apple store application page"
- The Status code that is about to be sent back to the user
Restrictions on the IP address of the request
"This page should only be accessible from our offices IP address"
- Apply only to a limited share of your traffic using sampling
Actionsdefine what has to be performed on the response
- Redirect 301, 302, 307 or 308, to the Location of your choice
"Add Cache-Control headers to every 301 redirects, to avoid browsers caching them without time limits"
- Change the HTML meta tags (title, description, keywords, etc.)
- Change the robots.txt content
Send a 404 or 410 HTTP response
"This page will never exist again, and there is nowhere to redirect the client. Let's send a 410 error at the server level, without requesting our backend application"
Inject HTML code in several parts of the response body
"– Chris, can you please change the GA token?"
