There are a lot of ways to redirect site visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is often favored. In contrast to parking a domain address, a URL forwarding is possible only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means in simple terms is that you could 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 several 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 case you are communicating with clients or partners. If you have 2 identical sites and you would like to rebuild one of them, you may redirect the traffic to the other Internet site in order to avoid losing potential customers, while you shall still be able to access the administration area for the first website and develop it.
