Hi,

Is there any way not to leave history of the URL of the website visited on the browser?

Basically I do not want the user to go back to the website by going to history to retrieve it.

Thank You.

if I understood your question:
in each pages, check the referer URL, if it's not your website redirect to the homepage

short answer: no.
long answer: if the browser allows scripting (JavaScript, ActiveX) it might be possible depending on the browser

so I understood.
As ahoffmann said, the answer is no.
But refer to my first comment.

I mean that if someone try to access your your site with the browser history, you can redirect him
to the homepage....It's just a suggestion
