308 Permanent Redirect
308 Permanent Redirect is similar to
301 Moved Permanently.
Both indicate that the resource the user tried to access has moved to a new
location. In both cases the client should update any bookmarks they had from
the old to the new location. Search engines respect these statuses too.
The difference between
308 is that a client that sees a
redirect MUST do the exact same request on the target location. If the
request was a
POST and and had a body, then the client must do a
request with a body on the new location.
In the case of
301 a client may do this. In practice, most clients don’t
do this and convert the
POST request to a
308 is relatively new, and is currently marked as experimental in
RFC7238. Most modern clients support it, but you might run into some
issues with older clients.
