The cleanest way to redirect a URL in a quick, easy, and search-engine friendly way is to do them through your .htaccess file which is usually found in your websites root folder (ie. httpdocs).
Note: htaccess stuff is for Apache servers only.
Redirect a single page
Redirect 301 /oldwebpage/ http://www.yourwebsite.com/newpage.html Redirect 301 /oldwebpage2.html http://www.yourwebsite.com/folder/
Redirect an entire site
Redirect 301 / http://newwebsite.com/
An alternative way is to do a Meta Refresh, this is a line of code you would add between theelements. The following redirects to the specified URL in 3 seconds. Set to 0 for an immediate redirect.
<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="3;url=http://newwebsite.com/" />
