URL redirection based on spelling solves often invisible end user experience and performance issues. Mistyped URLs and links often go unnoticed by developers, administrators and site owners, yet these typo errors harm user experience, damage a company's online brand, and lead to untracked lost sales. For business Web application users, spelling mistakes in URLs translate to lost revenues and reduced productivity. URLSpellCheck eliminates common URL spelling errors automatically and unobtrusively to provide a better user experience on your Web site or application.

Did your user really mean www.yourdomain.com/products, but they just forgot the 's' at the end? Now, it doesn't matter. Use URLSpellCheck to fix small typos such as missing characters, transposed characters, wrong characters, and extra characters very easily and redirect users to the correct URL, avoiding annoying 404 error pages. Complex matches substituting file names such as filename.htm to filename.asp are also possible with URLSpellCheck, allowing developers to switch site technologies quickly without manual redirects. When multiple matches for a URL are possible, a template showing users the various probable pages is provided. You can even map file names without extensions to their correct pages, allowing for very clean and easy-to-remember deep URLs in your marketing materials. URLSpellCheck also tracks common typos in a log file so you can figure out where to add permanent redirects or change page names in your site.

Best of all, URLSpellCheck doesn't require major configuration or monitoring. A simple two minute installation and configuration, and you've improved your site with a better user experience. So don't delay -- wipe out URL spelling errors today!
