Meta tag http-equiv refresh is used to tell the browser to refresh or reload the page and is usually placed in the <head> section of an HTML document.

<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="5"/>

The option content defines the time in second of how long the browser should wait to reload the page.

To redirect to another site, the option content needs to be changed to include the URL slightly it is to be redirected to and, as in the following example, will immediately redirect to

<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0;url="/>
