301 Redirects

The HTTP response status code 301 Moved Permanently is used for permanent redirection, meaning current links or records using the URL that the 301 Moved Permanently response is received for should be updated to the new URL provided in the Location field of the response. This status code should be used with the location header. RFC 2616 states that: If a client has link-editing capabilities, it should update all references to the Request URL. The response is cachable. Unless the request method was HEAD, the entity should contain a small hypertext note with a hyperlink to the new URL(s).
