Working on my current project, I come up with a scenario to switch a visitor to a new page after some process.
Here I have an option to use either redirect() or server.transfer(). So what are the tradeoffs:
- Redirect() would allow to navigate to other pages out of the current website unlike Transfer()
- Redirect() needs a round-trip to client page but transfer() won’t need this which would make transfer() a bit fast
Well for my case, I am not redirecting to other page and I want it to be fast so – I have used Server.Transfer().
