When we pay any utility bill online, our request is redirected to another site (site of bank) since forward is not possible due to different context/application.

In case of redirect, it�s all together a new request from client side so how this request still contains parameters (information about vendor, money etc)? When these parameters are added to the request?

Thanks.

Redirected from where?

When you log into your bank's web application, you're on their server. What other server do you think that a redirect is happening from?

Say I am on Electricity site. I log in to the site, select my bank and click on �Pay Bill�. It takes me to the site of bank which I selected. So I think IT IS redirect. Electricity site is redirecting request to bank�s site...
