There are a lot of ways to redirect site visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is commonly preferred. In contrast to parking a domain name, a URL forwarding is possible only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means in simple terms is that you can still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you may set up e-mail addresses or subdomains and use them. Such a function has lots of practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain address, you may redirect the traffic, but the emails with the old one shall still be active whenever you are getting in touch with clients or partners. If you have two similar sites and you need to rebuild one of them, you may redirect the traffic to the other site in order to avoid losing potential clients, while you will still be able to access the admin area for the first website and work on it.
