Redirection 3xx

This class of status code indicates that further actions need to be taken by the user agent in order to fulfill the request. The action required MAY be carried out by the user agent without interaction with the user if, and only if, the method used in the second request is GET or HEAD. A client SHOULD detect infinite redirection loops, since such loops generate network traffic for each redirection.

Note: previous versions of this specification recommended a maximum of five redirections. Content developers should be aware that there might be clients that implement such a fixed limitation.
