location object contains information about the current URL, and it provides several methods for navigating to a different URL.
The most common way to redirect to another page is to use the
assign method of the
location object, which loads a new page from the specified URL. Here is an example:
This will load the page at
https://www.example.com in the current window or tab.
You can also use the
replace method of the
location object to replace the current page in the history with the new page. This is useful if you want to prevent the user from being able to go back to the previous page using the browser’s back button.
Note that the
replace methods will only work if the new page is on the same origin as the current page (i.e., it has the same protocol, domain, and port). If you want to redirect to a page on a different origin, you can use the
window.open method to open a new window or tab with the specified URL.
This will open the page at
https://www.example.com in a new window or tab, depending on the user’s browser settings.
It is also possible to redirect to another page using the
window.location property directly. For example:
window.location = 'https://www.example.com';
