There are a number of ways to redirect site visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is oftentimes preferred. In contrast to parking a domain name, a URL forwarding is possible only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means essentially is that you could still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you may create e mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This type of feature has several practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain address, you may forward the traffic, but the e-mails with the old one shall still be active if you are making contact with clients or partners. When you have two similar websites and you intend to rebuild one of them, you can forward the website visitors to the other site to avoid losing potential customers, while you'll still be able to access the administrator area for the first site and develop it.
