Laravel - Routing - Redirect Routes
If you are defining a route that redirects to another URI, you may use the Route::redirect method. This method provides a convenient shortcut so that you do not have to define a full route or controller for performing a simple redirect:
By default, Route::redirect returns a 302 status code. You may customize the status code using the optional third parameter:
Route::redirect('/here', '/there', 301);
Or, you may use the Route::permanentRedirect method to return a 301 status code:
When using route parameters in redirect routes, the following parameters are reserved by Laravel and cannot be used: destination and status.
