Redirecting a Page
How to automatically redirect a page to another address.
This simple guide shows you two ways of redirecting a web page to a different web page.
This first example is useful if you want to inform your visitor that you have moved.
Into the HEAD section of your page type:
<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="5; URL=http://my_new_web_address">
And then into the BODY of your document put:
"My_old_web_address" has moved to "My_new_web_address"
You don't need to display a message and can just redirect quickly by setting the time to zero, but it's polite to inform your visitor! :)
The second example using java script is handy if you have a number of domain names (for whatever reason) but want all names to point to the same domain.
Just add this to the top of your document:
The above code will check if 'your-domain.fi' is part of the code and if not will immediately redirect to 'http://your-domain.fi'
Option 2 is best I think unless you want to actually inform your visitor of the change then option 1 can be a good idea.
