Href link using php is not redirecting


#1

i am fetching a column value(URL) from database and placed it in a href tag .the code pasted below.
the value in the table is www.google.com

<td> <a target="_blank" href="<?=$row['further']?>"> <?=$row['further']; ?> </a></td>

When i trying to access it , instead of going to www.google.com it is redirecting to

https://sensorspace-nakkabhavanisankar.c9users.io/https://www.google.com

it is adding my workspace url to actual URL. so what should i do now to resolve my issue. anyone please help me out.
