Website Redirect

  Goonhavern Blue 21:40 12 Feb 2007

Following on from my tread this morning.

If I have a website on my Freeserve / Wanadoo / Orange webspace, and then upload it to my BB Tiscali Webspace, is there some way of redirecting anyone who types in the original url, automatically to my new webspace, and for free.

How do I go about it?

Any help appreciated.

Put a webpage up in the old space, with the text "please wait while we redirect you" or something similar.

In the <head> section of that page's html add
<meta http-equiv="REFRESH" content="0;url=click here">

the number in front of the url, in this case '0' sets the amount of seconds before it redirects. If you are putting text or images on your page, I suggest you set that a bit higher.
