The HTTP response status code 303 See Other is the correct manner in which to redirect web applications to a new URI, particularly after an HTTP POST has been performed.

This response indicates that the correct response can be found under a different URI and should be retrieved using a GET method. The specified URI is not a substitute reference for the original resource.

This status code should be used with the location header.

Example

Client request:

GET / HTTP/1.1
Host: www.example.com

Server response:

HTTP/1.1 303 See Other
Location: http://example.org/
