How to automatically redirect a Web Page to another URL?

Page redirection is a situation where you clicked a URL to reach a page X but internally you were directed to another page Y. It happens due to page redirection.

To redirect from an HTML page, use the META Tag. With this, use the http-equiv attribute to provide an HTTP header for the value of the content attribute. The value of the content is the number of seconds; you want the page to redirect after.

Set the content attribute to 0, if you want the page to load the new URL immediately.


The following is an example of redirecting current page to another website after 3 seconds.
