There are many ways to redirect site visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is often preferred. In contrast to parking a domain name, a URL redirection is possible only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means essentially is that you can still open any content in case you have a direct link to it and you can set up e mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This sort of function has several practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain address, you could redirect the visitors, but the e-mails with the old one shall still be active if you are getting in touch with clients or partners. When you have 2 similar websites and you want to rebuild one of them, you could forward the traffic to the other site to avoid losing potential customers, while you shall still be able to access the administrator area for the first website and work on it.
