Selenium WebDriver provides methods to navigate to a url; these are driver.get() and driver.navigate().to().

For example:

driver.get("https://devqa.io")

and

driver.navigate().to("https://devqa.io")

There is also another way to navigate to a url and that is by using the WebDriver’s Javascript Executor, as shown in this example.

WebDriver - Navigate to URL Using JavaScript

Using window.location:

import org.openqa.selenium.JavascriptExecutor;
import org.openqa.selenium.WebDriver;
import org.openqa.selenium.chrome.ChromeDriver;

public class WebDriverJSExecutor {

    private static String url = "https://devqa.io";

    public static void main(String[] args) {
        WebDriver driver = new ChromeDriver();
        ((JavascriptExecutor)driver).executeScript("window.location = \'"+url+"\'");
    }
}
