There are a lot of ways to redirect website visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is commonly favored. In contrast to parking a domain name, a URL redirection can be done only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means essentially is that you could still open any content in case you have a direct link to it and you could set up email addresses or subdomains and use them. This type of function has several practical uses - if you decide to switch your domain address, you can redirect the traffic, but the emails with the old one shall still be active in case you are getting in touch with clients or partners. When you have 2 similar Internet sites and you would like to rebuild one of them, you can forward the website visitors to the other Internet site in order to avoid losing potential customers, while you shall still be able to access the administration area for the first website and work on it.
