Redirecting Visitors to a New Page Using JavaScript

You can automatically redirect visitors from one page to another in several ways. Here's a flexible method that uses JavaScript to modify the href property of the location object in the browser's Document Object Model (DOM).

Remember to cater for browsers that don't support scripting languages by also including a normal HTML link for people to click on.

 
<HTML>
<HEAD>
<TITLE>We've Moved!</TITLE>
<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript">
function redirect()
{
// Set the value of the href property of the 
location object to the address to which we want to 
redirect users_
document.location.href = "http://www.our_new_address.com";
}
</SCRIPT>
<BODY ONLOAD="redirect()">
We've moved! Click <a HREF=http://www.our_new_address.com>here</A> 
to visit us at our new address.
</BODY>
</HTML>
