Redirects

As for redirects, our browser reached this domain in three steps. The first redirect led to http://www.benefitspro.com/, then it was forwarded to http://store.benefitspro.com/Registration/Login.aspx?mode=token&token=37D49D9D-E..., and afterwards it was sent to http://www.benefitspro.com/?slreturn=1456790887 before we finally managed to reach this website. We strongly recommend that the redirects should be reduced, as the more redirects a site has, the slower it loads.
