Last month when I was moving a new client’s site from HTTP to HTTPS, I wanted to confirm that I set up the redirects correctly.
We were making some changes to the site URL, changing from using
and I needed to make sure I set up the redirects for the variations of www, non-www, http and https versions correctly.
I came across a handy tool (and it’s free!) to do exactly what I needed.
Created by Patrick Sexton, the online Redirect mapper tool will test redirects from www and non-www versions of a URL for both http and https.
Enter the URL you want to test and you’ll immediately get the results for your site.
If your site redirects are set up correctly, you’ll see one redirect for each version and one version should have no redirects.
Saved me a lot of headaches when I tested my client’s site.
Here’s the result for one of my clients I set up last year:
Great tool to add to your web design/development toolbox!
I shared it with my friend Chris Wiegman, thinking he probably already know about it.
Surprise! Probably the first time I’ve shared a tool with Chris that he hadn’t heard of.
How about you? What tool(s) do you use to test redirects?
