PHP and HTML redirects  Print this Article

If you do not wish to use the .htaccess file to redirect your visitors, you can use another option - a PHP or an HTML file which will perform the actual redirection. Below are examples for both programming languages:

For PHP, create a file (index.php for example) and add the following lines in it:

<?php
header( 'Location: http://www.yoursite.com/redirect_location' ) ;
?>

For HTML, create a file (index.html for example) with the following content:

<META HTTP-EQUIV="Refresh"
CONTENT="0; URL=http://www.yoursite.com/redirect_location">

Here you have the option to delay the redirect by increasing the CONTENT variable. For example CONTENT=5 will delay the redirect for 5 seconds.
