There are many ways to redirect site visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is oftentimes favored. In contrast to parking a domain name, a URL redirection is feasible only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means essentially is that you may still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you could set up email addresses or subdomains and use them. Such a function has numerous practical uses - if you decide to switch your domain, you can forward the visitors, but the emails with the old one will still be active in the event that you are communicating with customers or partners. If you have 2 identical sites and you need to rebuild one of them, you may forward the traffic to the other Internet site in order to avoid losing potential clients, while you shall still be able to access the admin area for the first Internet site and work on it.
