Is it possible to make a site that only preforms a redirect to another
site? Here's an example:
Let's just say that a netflix.com URL to a movie is something like
Could you make a really simple app in Rails at say the domain
netflixit.com that allows people to just type in like netflixit.com/
fantasy/heroes and be instantly directed to the netflix version? So, I
guess it has to convert and change the URL, but I don't know how. The
website would be pretty much blank. The only thing it would be used
for is automatically redirecting to the netflix site. The idea is just
to give people an easier way to find something in a database type site
if they already know what they are looking for.
This sounds like it would be very easy, but I'm still a beginner in
Rails. I don't even know the correct term for what this would be
called - might be easier to find information if I did
So, does anyone know any tutorials that show how to do this, or at
least know the technical term for this so I can do my own searching?
