301 Moved Permanently

The 301 (Moved Permanently) status code indicates that the target
resource has been assigned a new permanent URI and any future
references to this resource ought to use one of the enclosed URIs.
Clients with link-editing capabilities ought to automatically re-link
references to the effective request URI to one or more of the new
references sent by the server, where possible.

The server SHOULD generate a Location header field in the response
containing a preferred URI reference for the new permanent URI. The
user agent MAY use the Location field value for automatic
redirection. The server’s response payload usually contains a short
hypertext note with a hyperlink to the new URI(s).

  Note: For historical reasons, a user agent MAY change the request
  method from POST to GET for the subsequent request.  If this
  behavior is undesired, the 307 (Temporary Redirect) status code
  can be used instead.

A 301 response is cacheable by default; i.e., unless otherwise
indicated by the method definition or explicit cache controls (see
).
