Insert this tag inside the <head> part of the old web page and it will redirect traffic automatically to the new page/site or wherever you want. Copy/paste it so you get the syntax right.
<meta http-equiv="REFRESH" content="0;url=http://www.yourwebsite.com/">
The 0 is zero, the time delay for the refresh. If you set that to zero it will be automatic. If you set it to a larger number it will display the page briefly, then redirect.
Just put the desired URL where I have www.yourwebsite.com/ and upload it to the server. You can put that on any or all pages, just in case someone has bookmarked a page on your old site.
This can be used on a Thank You page after someone completes a purchase. You can set the refresh time for 10-20 seconds, then redirect them back to your home page.
