 A new redirect function has been activated on Stargate.
To prevent 404 error messages to users having found links about my old site, I decided to implement a redirection function which notifies the user-browser with a little 301 messages. A 301 Moved Permanently message will be returned to the browser including the new URL on where the original data was, and if the browser is handling this correctly, will automatically redirect the request to the local resource.
The 301 message is also a message for the webcrawlers/bots to update their database references and not return the old URL's anymore on search, instead update their caches with the correct URL and return that one instead.  

This page was issued from the Stargate Website:

The URL for this page is:
