URL Rewrite vs URL Redirect

URL Rewrite
  • Is a server side operation which means the rewriting is done at the server
  • May result in a static page, a dynamic page, or an image file
URL Redirect
  • Is a client side operation
  • Accepts the request then sends a response to the client immediately with the new URL
  • Therefore, it causes the client browser to make a second request with the new URL
