What is Webpage Redirection?

Now when you want to go to one website i.e xyz.com and type in the website’s address www.xyz.com in the address bar but you are redirected to another website let’s say www.abc.com, then it is called web redirection.
This situation can occur for various reason. It can be because of the click hijacks, virus or other computer vulnerabilities through which your computer is infected.
Or it can also happen because the webmaster has shifted his websites to the new web address and he himself has done customization to its website’s control panel to redirect you to a whole new domain. The other reason for web redirection can also be due to your browser’s cookies and cache.
Web redirection is a common web practice and there is nothing much to worry about.
