A server-side redirection is a means of navigating from one URL to another, conducted by the web server (i.e. on the server-side). Compare with client-side redirection.
How they work
A server-side redirection is accomplished by sending a HTTP header, like so:
301 Moved Permanently Location: http://www.example.com/
The HTTP status code can vary. Most commonly used are:
- 301 Moved Permanently
- 302 Found
- 303 See Other
Sitebeam automatically handles server-side redirections while the site is being spidered. Server-side redirections do not count as pages.
