There are various ways to redirect website visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is frequently preferred. In contrast to parking a domain name, a URL redirection is feasible only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means in simple terms is that you may still open any content in case you have a direct link to it and you could create e mail addresses or subdomains and use them. Such a feature has lots of practical uses - if you want to switch your domain, you can forward the traffic, but the e-mails with the old one will still be active if you are communicating with customers or partners. When you have 2 very similar sites and you want to rebuild one of them, you could forward the visitors to the other Internet site so as to avoid losing potential clients, while you shall still be able to access the administrator area for the first website and improve it.
