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