Web Hosting Tips for Webmasters -
By Sanjib Ahmad | On June 15, 2005
A PHP Redirect automatically transfers a web user from one URL to another. For example, typing foo.com in the browser automatically transfers the user to another URL bar.com.
The PHP Redirect command:
Replace [some-url] with the URL where you want the redirection to take place.
=>redirect to "index.html" page in subfolder called "version2"
=>redirect to a website called yahoo.com
If PHP is not available, it's also possible to use other redirects:
* HTTP Redirects
<meta http-equiv="Refresh" content="[time]; URL=[some-url]">
Replace [time] with seconds. This will pause the browser for the specified number of seconds. Replace [some-url] with the target URL you want to redirect.
<meta http-equiv="Refresh" content="5; URL=http://www.yahoo.com">
The above HTTP based redirect needs to be in the region of the HTML code.
Replace [time] with milliseconds. This will pause the browser for the specified number of seconds. Replace [some-url] with the target URL you want to redirect.
