You can use JavaScript window.location to redirect a visitor to a required page. You may have seen this feature used by sites with full page ads, or to redirect visitors to the site's new domain name. You can add also a timer to the script that will allow the page to redirect and the visitors will not need to click a link or type in the new URL.

Code Snippet:

    <script type="text/javascript">
var count = 6;

var timer = document.getElementById("timer");

setTimeout("countDown()", 1000);
