redirection.io lets you create redirections in a very simple and intuitive way, with a concern for efficiency and performance. Whether you need redirects for marketing purposes, to track social media marketing campaigns, to manage out-of-stock products, to re-organize you website traffic after a redesign, or simply to fix the day-to-day errors, we provide you with the perfect solution to manage your website redirections in a safe and simple way. Creating HTTP redirects is useful in many contexts: read about it in our knowledge base.
- create all types of redirections
- support for 301, 302, 307, 308
- absolute or relative redirects
- markers and regular expressions, the easy way
- check your redirections with examples
- complete import and exports facilities
- get usage logs for each rule
- preview the effect of a rule before it is in production
Create all types of redirections
redirection.io supports all types of HTTP redirects, either permanent or temporary. We also allow to create less common 307 et 308 redirections, if this is required by your business.
Our redirection engine is very flexible, performant, and can adapt to every marketing or business requirement.
Use markers for advanced rules
Creating redirection rules that match several URLs is usually done using regular expressions, which are not the most user-friendly thing!
Our redirect engine allows to create regex-based redirect rules in an easy way, using the rules creation assistant. We provide many marker types and options, along with marker transformers.
Use logs as examples
Creating redirections raises a number of questions: will this rule be used? Will it overlap another rule? Does it work as I expect it?
redirection.io helps answer these questions with the concept of examples. Real-life traffic logs are used to generate example requests that are attached to newly created rules (and you can add your own examples).
Before publishing the ruleset, testing that all the examples work as expected avoids bad surprises!
Get usage details for each rule
Once a rule is published, we log each of its usage and offer a complete overview of the rule impact on your website’s traffic. You can also read all the history of the rule, see who made changes to the rule, and how often it has been used since then.
From the rules details panel, it is possible to get the list of all the requests that have been matched using this rule, which is helpful to analyze the efficiency of your redirects.
Test the rules before they are applied in production
The examples attached to redirection rules act like unit tests: we provide an in-deep action inspector, which explains why a request is matched or not, gives the list of all the matched rules in the ruleset for this request, and compute the expected response for this request.
Using redirection.io helps to avoid deploying in production untested redirects.
redirection.io is an important tool for the Orpi Web platform. We've been using the solution since we redesigned our sites several years ago, and it has allowed us to make a smooth transition, really limiting the number of 404 errors our visitors would have encountered.
As part of the ongoing operations, we use redirection.io to monitor traffic, detect errors, and add redirects when the address of certain content changes. It's easy to use and allows us to act quickly, without needing the intervention of developers to deal with this type of issue.
