Bulk url checker utility lets you scan and check lists of URL addresses quickly and gives you all information you may need. Status code, response time, content type and its length. It checks for redirects, gives you final destination URL and all relocations in between.It also detects Loops in redirections (which occur when two pages redirect to each other and in doing so look themselves in a loop). Redirect chains are easy to examine because there are two panes which show every parameter in a clean and intuitive way.
This tool lets you set different parameters such as which HTTP version to use ,which method (head or get),number of streams to run at the same time,timeout (to abandon a link if it doesn't responds after set time). Also you can limit number of redirects to avoid long infinite loops (which end up only after server gives up). You can set custom user agent string (or use from a list of standard user agents such Google,Yahoo or popular browsers).You can add custom headers to requests if you need to examine servers behaviour under some special circumstances.
It uses Get or Head requests but downloads only header information so no actual data (body,content,sound,video...) is downloaded which makes it very efficient and fast.
Unlike online tools that can handle only small number of URLs it can handle thousands of URL with fastest speed possible (depending only on you connection and servers speed).
It can import URL list from clipboard or open and scan xml files,html files,site map files,csv files and plain text files. It saves the results in its own format or standard Excel csv format.
It has powerful and intuitive filter and sort functions which let you see all relevant data for you very easily,if it is not enough you can export csv report and do whatever you need in an external spreadsheet editor.
