Please note

  • It is usually not relevant if you specify the destination URL with or without the prefix "http://". Nor it is relevant whether the destination is reachable or not.
  • The request is redirected to the destination URL just in the way you have specified it.
  • There is merely a syntax check - the functionality of the destination URL is not tested. Therefore check the functionality of the destination URL in advance.
  • Kindly note it may need up to eight hours for DNS changes to take effect,
