How to do an automatic redirection link?

Hi!
I want to do en automatic redirection link from my old website (the index.htm in my old site) to my new site. How do I do that?  (I.e when a surfer surf to my old site, the surfer shall be automatically redirected to my new site from my old index.html)
Can that be done, and in that case how?

Would be very happy for a solution to that!

You can use Meta tags for that

<Meta name="refresh" url="yournewurl.htm" contents=5>

This should take the user to Your new page after 5 seconds.

Good luck,

isn't it supposed to be content="5" for the five seconds not contents? (the ever present typo?)

Thank's for your engagement, but I'm sorry, I can't get your code to work.
I'v tryed to place the code both in the head- and body-part of my page! Nothing works.
The url to my redirection site is
http://home.bip.net/turnkeysystems

No redirection occur when entering this index-page.

Best regards
