URL Redirect is a webserver’s functionality to send a user from one URL to another one.
Such redirects usually take the shape of an automated redirect that uses one of a series of status codes that are defined within the HTTP Protocol.

You can now create URL Redirects straight from the SPEED tab.

In order to enable the SPEED URL Redirects rule, head over to the SPEED section:

Additional conditions can be added to redirect only certain pages from the site to another URL.

After you add the rules and temper the values as needed, proceed to Add Rule & Apply Configuration. 

The rule will automatically become Enabled and it will shortly take effect on your server.
