There are a lot of ways to redirect traffic from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is oftentimes favored. In contrast to parking a domain name, a URL redirection can be done only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means essentially is that you can still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you can set up e mail addresses or subdomains and use them. Such a feature has numerous practical uses - if you want to switch your domain address, you can forward the visitors, but the emails with the old one shall still be active in the event that you are making contact with clients or partners. In case you have two similar Internet sites and you need to rebuild one of them, you could forward the visitors to the other Internet site to prevent losing potential clients, while you'll still be able to access the administrator area for the first site and improve it.
