Management of redirections

The HTTP standard provides the possibility of a URL being redirected towards another URL; in other words, one URL is replaced by another. When your browser accesses a URL, the web server which manages it can indicate that the URL in question has moved, either temporarily, or permanently. At the HTTP protocol level, when your web server sends a 302 code, it is known as temporary redirects, whereas if your web server sends a 301 code, it is referred to as permanent redirects.

In the case of a temporary or permanent HTTP redirect, our monitoring platform will automatically follow the redirects and perform the monitoring of the URL to which the initial URL was moved.
