How to Redirect a Web Page Automatically to Another Web Page in HTML?


You have an html page. May be it is old version or corrupted. When users click for the page, you want to send users to another link or page. Suppose a person visits “” in the browser and the page is redirected to “” instead. How do you do that?


The simplest way to redirect to another URL is with the Meta Refresh tag The code Add the following meta tag inside the head element of HTML page

<meta http-equiv="refresh"content="0; url="/>


Meta refresh is a method of instructing a web browser to automatically refresh the current web page or frame after a given time interval. To refresh the current page, “http-equiv” parameter set to “refresh” and to set time interval “content” parameter is used in second unit. Suppose if “content” set to 5, the page will refresh after 5 seconds interval. If we want to redirect the current webpage to another page, “url” parameter is used. If we use “url=”, the current page will be redirected to “” page. So here “meta” element is used to redirect the current to another page with a refresh after a given time.

But the use of meta refresh is discouraged by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), since some browsers don’t support it
