Hosted Web Apps are Universal Windows Apps that let you leverage your existing web workflows and continuous deployment to publish a responsive web app to the Windows Store. You can start with a preexisting website URL, place it in the app manifest, and create an app targeting the Windows 10 platform. Once installed, your website can integrate with the platform and call Universal Windows APIs from JavaScript. For more information and resources, check out the "Project Westminster" landing page.

      Yes the redirect after publication is possible but clearly violates multiple Windows Store Policies. When detected by the store, this app would be taken down. It's a similar process to Windows 8/8.1 apps that contained a WebView.
