There are many ways to redirect website visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is often favored. In contrast to parking a domain, a URL forwarding is feasible only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means basically is that you can still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you can create email addresses or subdomains and use them. This kind of feature has lots of practical uses - if you want to switch your domain name, you may redirect the traffic, but the e-mail messages with the old one shall still be active whenever you are making contact with clients or partners. In case you have 2 similar websites and you need to rebuild one of them, you could redirect the visitors to the other Internet site in order to prevent losing potential customers, while you will still be able to access the admin area for the first Internet site and work on it.
