Javascript Redirect URLSometimes we have to redirect a page to another location. This can be achieved by using the Javascript window.location method in the HTML page  using the following snippet.

This script can be added anywhere on the page, however as a best practice it should be added at the beginning of the web page.

<script language="JavaScript">
<!--
window.location="http://www.another-url-or-site.com/something";
// -->
</script>

Alternately, if we can call this same Javascript on onclick method of the href (anchor tag). This achieves result except this is when the user clicks on the link rather than automatically be redirected to another site or location as defined in the URL.

<a href="#"onclick="window.location='http://www.another-url-or-site.com/something'; return false;">Click here</a>
