The difference between Server.Transfer and Response.Redirect in ASP.NET

The difference between Server.Transfer and Response.Redirect in ASP.NET

Server.Transfer processes the page from one page directly to the next page without making a round-trip back to the client’s browser. This way is faster, with a little less overhead on the server. However, it does not update the clients URL history list or current URL.

Response.Redirect, as expected, is used to redirect the user’s browser to another page or site. It does perform a trip back to the client where the client’s browser is actually redirected to the new page. The browser history list is updated to reflect the new address.

    thank u for useful info…..but if server.transfer is a better is that means we don’t have to use response.redirect any more?

      Well, it depends on your case. Because you can’t use query string in Server.Transfer, so this is not the perfect solution after all.

      you can use query string with server.transfere if you set the preserveForm param to true.
      and I consider 2 functionality is diff. it’s not the same sport :))

      if you are trying to pass an object to the another page. using the httpcontext. you cant use redirect thing.

      also server.transfer can’t send the user to external site.

      simply redirect tells the browser to visit another page.

    Wonderful website you have here but I was wondering if you knew of any community forums that cover the same topics talked about
    here? I’d really like to be a part of online community
    where I can get responses from other experienced
    individuals that share the same interest. If you have any
    suggestions, please let me know. Appreciate it!

    if you added a headline that makes people want

    viewers to open the links. You might try adding a video or a picture or
