There are a lot of ways to redirect site visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is commonly preferred. In contrast to parking a domain name, a URL forwarding is feasible only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means basically is that you could still open any content in case you have a direct link to it and you can set up e-mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This kind of function has many practical uses - if you want to switch your domain address, you may redirect the traffic, but the e-mail messages with the old one shall still be active if you are making contact with clients or partners. In case you have 2 identical Internet sites and you intend to rebuild one of them, you could forward the website visitors to the other Internet site in order to prevent losing potential customers, while you will still be able to access the administration area for the first website and improve it.
