    Many type of transfer you can achieve. The easiest is the redirect to an html page.

    Technically speaking html doesn't do anything aside from mark up text and media to be presented on the web, css does the presentation and style, javascript does the dynamic content portion and php does the server side backend and data control. You could use ajax to do this and there exist multiple ways to do this which include 3 common methods all of which can be done via php. Theres outputting a meta refresh, javascript and the plan php redirect.

    meta tag refresh

    <meta http-equiv="refresh" content="600;url=www.mysite.com" />
    javascript redirect

    <script type="text/javascript">
    function redirect(loc,t,ts = "S")
    if(ts == "M")
    /* minutes add multiply by 1000 for minutes */
    var pageShift = setTimeout(loc,t * 60000);
    if(ts == "MS")
    /* do nothing */
    var pageShift = setTimeout(loc,t);
    if(ts == "H")
    /* use hours */
    var pageShift = setTimeout(loc,t * 3600000);
    if(ts == "S")
    /* seconds */
    var pageShift = setTimeout(loc,t * 1000);
    php header

    function redirect($url)
    header("location: " $url);
    the first two can be outputted via a php page using echo or print functions which would redirect to a standard html page, the second one would redirect one page load and function call. Hope this works for you

    proabably javascript is your choice because php cannot handle anything once it is parsed
    so you need JS + Ajax would be a good solution if it is dynamic :D
