There are a lot of ways to redirect traffic from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is commonly favored. In contrast to parking a domain address, a URL forwarding is possible only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means in simple terms is that you may still open any content in case you have a direct link to it and you can set up email addresses or subdomains and use them. This kind of function has lots of practical uses - if you decide to switch your domain name, you may forward the visitors, but the e-mail messages with the old one will still be active in case you are making contact with clients or partners. When you have two similar Internet sites and you want to rebuild one of them, you could forward the website visitors to the other website so that you can prevent losing potential customers, while you shall still be able to access the administrator area for the first Internet site and work on it.
