Avoid redirections

(Hosting)
#45

Redirections should be avoided as much as possible as they slow down response and drain resources unnecessarily. These redirections can take place on various levels: HTML code, JavaScript code, HTTP server and application server (e.g. PHP).

At the HTTP server level (Apache in this case), a redirection involves systematically rewriting the URLs via the .htaccessfile:
.htaccess :

<IfModule mod_alias.c>
Permanent redirection http://old_address.fr http://new.address.fr/
</IfModule>

It would be better to manually replace the web pages’ static addresses.
