A 301 redirect is a Web server function where an old URL can be redirected to a new one. 301 Redirect is a “permanent” redirect status indicating that the resource has moved permanently. A 301 redirect is typically used on a website to ensure users and search engines can access the latest version of a webpage that has been moved from the original URL.
