Since I decided to stop using www.techhippos.net, I created a simple index.php with a META refresh tag to redirect visitors to my new site. This is what I used in my index.php file:
<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="10; http://18.104.22.168/index.php" >
This works fine in FireFox, but in IE, it keeps refresh itself without redirecting to the new site. It took me quite some time to figure out that I missed “url=” for the destination URL. So it should be:
<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="10; url=http://22.214.171.124/index.php" >
I thought IE is more tolerant than FireFox as far as the web standard is concerned, and apparently I was wrong.
