There are many ways to redirect visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is oftentimes preferred. In contrast to parking a domain address, a URL forwarding is possible 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 can create email addresses or subdomains and use them. This kind of function has lots of practical uses - if you want to switch your domain name, you could redirect the traffic, but the emails with the old one shall still be active in case 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 can forward the visitors to the other website so that you can prevent losing potential clients, while you'll still be able to access the administrator area for the first site and develop it.
