Based on your question, it sounds like you want to create a new landing page that displays links to your two other websites and then automatically redirects the user to these sites after 10-15 seconds. This can be done by creating a simple HTML page with JavaScript for the automatic redirection.

Here’s an example of how you can set this up:

<!DOCTYPE html>
    <title>Your New Site</title>
    <script type="text/javascript">
        var counter = 0;
        var urls = ['', ''];

        function redirect() {
            setTimeout(function() {
                window.location.href = urls[counter];
                counter = (counter + 1) % urls.length;  // Cycle through the urls
                redirect();  // Set the next redirection
            }, 10000);  // Change the time to the desired delay in milliseconds, 10000 milliseconds = 10 seconds
<body onload="redirect()">
    <h1>Welcome to My New Site</h1>
    <p>Check out my other websites:</p>
        <li><a href="">First Website</a></li>
        <li><a href="">Second Website</a></li>

This code creates a new HTML document with links to your two other websites. The JavaScript code sets a timer that redirects to the first URL after the delay specified (10 seconds in this case), and then redirects to the second URL after another delay, and so on.

Note that this is a simple implementation and does not persist the counter between page loads. That means if a user visits your page, they will always be redirected to the first URL after the delay. If you want to alternate between the two URLs for a single user, you will need to store the counter in a more persistent manner, like a cookie or local storage.

Remember to replace '' and '' with the actual URLs of your two websites.

Please note that auto-redirecting can create a confusing user experience and is generally not recommended. Consider using this sparingly and informing the user that they will be redirected.

You can redirect it with HTML, PHP or Java-script.

Here are the code for HTML: create index.html and place this code in head HTML

<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="15; URL='URL of website 2'" />
