Redirect Manager

The 301 Redirect Manager, located in your account through [Hosting > Manage 301 Redirects], is used to create a series of 301 redirect rules for your store.

A 301 redirect is a way of telling search engines that a webpage has been permanently moved to another location. 301 redirects are used to forward outdated (non-existing) URLs to their current web address. It is useful if you have changed the structure of your websites URLs. These redirects behave exactly the same as 301 redirects that would be used in .htaccess files, and even use the same syntax.

/path/to/file/old.php will be redirected to
/path/to/file/red_fruit.php will be redirected to
