About www Redirect Checker

A URL can be redirected for different reasons, but some of them can be malicious. Generally, a redirection can be due to the deletion of a page, the movement of a site to a new domain, the movement of a site to HTTPS, the modification of the URL of a page, the merge two or more sites, etc. However, a redirect can sometimes lead you to the wrong place, which can potentially harm your online security.

In any case, it is important to know where you are going when you click on a link. Our Redirect Checker tells you exactly where the link takes you.

Stay safe and informed with our tool.

Why do I need to follow my URL?

Because you are curious and want to know where a shortened URL leads (and you may not trust the source).
Because you are focused on security and want to avoid a phishing or malware attack.
Because you are a website creator and / or advertiser and you want to check your links.

What are the different types of redirects?

301 Moved permanently - This mainly means that the address you are trying to access has been permanently deleted or moved elsewhere. This redirection is generally used to delete or modify a page and replace it with another. The old one should be deleted and replaced with the new one to avoid redirection.

302 Found - Used for temporary redirection, a 302 is the equivalent of a 307 according to HTTP specifications (302 works for HTTP 1.0). It is used to temporarily redirect one URL to another. It is generally used when the redirected URL is intended to be reused in the future. This means that the page is available in a new location for a certain period of time, but not indefinitely.

303 See other - When the page needs more time to load (after filling out a form, payment by credit card, transaction, etc.), you are redirected to another page so as not to be tempted bookmark or refresh the page.

307 Temporary redirect - This is the equivalent of a 302 but for HTTP 1.1. The requested URL has been moved to another temporary location. This redirect is usually used when the old URL is needed again in the future.
