PHP and HTML redirects

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

  • For PHP, create a file (index.php for example) in the document root folder of your domain and add the following lines to it:
header( 'Location: http://www.yoursite.com/redirect_location' ) ;
  • For HTML, create a file (index.html for example) with the following content:
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.
