- Transfers the page control to the other page, in other words it sends the request to the other page.
- Causes the client to navigate to the page you are redirecting to. In http terms it sends a 302 response to the client, and the client goes where it’s told.
- Only transfers the execution to another page and during this you will see the URL of the old page since only execution is transferred to new page and not control.
- Occurs entirely on the server, no action is needed by the client
Sometimes for performance reasons, the server method is more desirable
