    </head>
    <body>
    <script>
        var url= "https://www.geeksforgeeks.org";
        window.location = url;
    </script>
    </body>
    </html>

    Code #2:
    Below code takes an input url from the user and the url is stored in a variable through getElementById() and window.location takes the page to that url.

    <!DOCTYPE html>
    <html>
    <head>
        <title>Redirect url in Javascript</title>
    </head>
    <body>
    <input id = "url" type = "text" name = "url" 
                            placeholder = "Enter a url here">
    <input type = "submit" name = "button" onclick = "fun()">
    <script>
    function fun() {
        var url= document.getElementById("url").value;
        document.write("Redirecting to the url in 3 seconds...");
        setTimeout(function(){window.location = url;}, 3000);
    }
    </script>
    </body>
    </html>
