What is GoHighlevel/Highlevel?
GoHighlevel, or just Highlevel as its users call it, is an all-in-one sales and marketing platform for marketing agencies and small businesses. The GoHighlevel platform offers every tool needed to run a business successfully at a fixed monthly cost. The GoHighlevel platform allows you to Whitelabel their software so agencies can use this platform and brand it like it was their own. This allows agencies to create a Software as a Service (SaaS) business and an additional monthly recurring revenue stream.
Typically agencies would perform a job for their client like building a website or running Facebook ads only to have the job end or the client cancel their service. Now, agencies have to continue to market to find another client. Now with GoHighlevel, you can migrate your clients off whatever CRM, email marketing tool, phone system, or funnel software they may be using and run their business entirely off the GoHighlevel platform. The best thing about this is that your clients pay you monthly for these services. You can charge $297, $497, or whatever you want to charge for these services and your client continues to pay for these each month like a utility creating a stable recurring monthly revenue.
GoHighlevel sets no limits for its users on any paid plan so you can have unlimited contacts, websites, funnels, email or text templates, and workflows. There are also no limits for storage so you can host as many videos, files, documents, or images as you or your clients may have.

What is a URL Redirect?
A URL redirect is a technique used to send website visitors from one URL to a different URL. It is used to ensure that when users type in or click on a link for a specific URL, they are automatically sent to a different URL.
URL redirects are often used to:
- Redirect users from old or outdated URLs to new ones, which helps maintain links’ integrity and ensure that users can access the correct content.
- Redirect users from HTTP to HTTPS, which provides a more secure browsing experience.
- Depending on the user’s device, redirect users from a mobile version of a website to a desktop version or vice versa.
- A redirect can also be used as a shortcut. For example, if you want to send a Zoom link to a client, you can use a redirect to make the URL smaller and more manageable. Instead of sending this URL “https://us06web.zoom.us/j/84012094301?pwd=dk45VGhNTElvckVORW9CS1V4OWJudz09” you can create a redirect for “https://yourdomain.com/zoom” and redirect people to the zoom link.
There are several URL redirects, including 301 redirects, 302 redirects, and meta refresh redirects. The most commonly used redirect is the 301 redirect, a permanent redirect telling search engines that the original URL has been permanently moved to a new URL.
NOTE: GoHighlevel only supplies 301 redirects on the platform. The domain name you are redirecting from must be registered in your account before you create the redirect.
How to setup URL Redirects in GoHighlevel?
Once you log in to your account, you will go to Settings and the URL Redirects menu option.
Click on the “Add a Redirect” button and fill in the original URL you want to redirect to, then the new URL you want the old redirect sent to.
Once you have entered all the information, click on the Add Redirect button, and that’s it.
