There are a lot of ways to redirect site visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is often favored. In contrast to parking a domain address, a URL forwarding is possible only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means in simple terms is that you may still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you could set up e mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This kind of feature has lots of practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain, you can forward the traffic, but the e-mail messages with the old one shall still be active whenever you are communicating with customers or partners. When you have 2 very similar Internet sites and you would like to rebuild one of them, you could redirect the traffic to the other Internet site so as to avoid losing potential clients, while you will still be able to access the admin area for the first site and develop it.
