There are many ways to redirect visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is frequently favored. In contrast to parking a domain, a URL redirection is feasible only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means basically is that you may still open any content in case you have a direct link to it and you could set up e mail addresses or subdomains and use them. Such a function has numerous practical uses - if you decide to switch your domain address, you could forward the traffic, but the e-mail messages with the old one will still be active if you are getting in touch with customers or partners. In case you have 2 very similar sites and you would like to rebuild one of them, you may forward the site visitors to the other website so that you can prevent losing potential customers, while you shall still be able to access the admin area for the first Internet site and work on it.
