Redirect Checker

The URL redirect checker follows the path of a URL and provides you with the complete URL, shortened link, or a concise redirection path.

A redirect checker is a tool used to verify and analyze the redirection behavior of a URL. When a user visits a specific URL, there may be cases where the web server responds with a redirect status code (such as 301, 302, 307) to forward the user to a different URL. The redirect checker tool allows you to enter a URL and checks if there are any redirects associated with it.

The redirect checker typically performs the following tasks:

  1. Sends an HTTP request to the specified URL.
  2. Checks the response status code to determine if it's a redirect or not.
  3. If a redirect is detected, it follows the redirect and repeats the process until a non-redirect response is received.
  4. Records the number of redirects encountered and the corresponding redirect status codes.
  5. Optionally, it can also track and display the final destination URL after all the redirects.

The redirect checker is commonly used for various purposes, including:

  • Verifying the correctness of redirection configurations on websites.
  • Analyzing the number of redirects and their impact on website performance.
  • Troubleshooting redirect loops or incorrect redirects.
  • Monitoring and auditing website redirection behavior.

By using a redirect checker, you can gain insights into how URLs are handled by web servers and ensure that the redirections are working as intended.
