How to redirect to another webpage using JavaScript?

JavascriptWeb DevelopmentFront End Technology

The window.location object contains the current location or URL information. We can redirect the users to another webpage using the properties of this object. window.location can be written without the prefix window.

We use the following properties of the window.location object to redirect the users to another webpage −

  • window.location.href- it returns the URL (href) of the current page.

  • window.location.replace()- it replaces the current document with new document.

  • window.location.assign() loads a new document.

The syntaxes below are used to redirect to another web page. We omit the window prefix and use only location in all the program examples. You can try running the programs using full name i.e. window.location.

Syntaxes

location.href = "url";
location.replace("url");
location.assign("url");

Parameters

url- it’s the URL of the new web page.

Redirect using location.href

The window.location.href property can be used to redirect to another page. We can use the following syntaxes to redirect -

Window.location.href = "url";
Location.href = "url";
location = "url";

The above-mentioned syntaxes are equivalent to each other you can use any of the syntaxes for your purpose of redirecting the users to another web page.
