Put .htaccess file in your web directory. In .htaccess include:
Redirect 301 /index.html http://www.example.com/start.html
The file ‘index.html’ doesn’t have to exist.
Include the following line in <head> block.
<meta http-equiv=”refresh” content=”2;url=http://webdesign.about.com”>
Avoid using meta redirect if possible. Meta redirect is (1) slow and (2) search engine unfriendly.
