There are many 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 redirection is feasible 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 may create email addresses or subdomains and use them. This type of feature has lots of practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain name, you could forward the site visitors, but the emails with the old one will still be active whenever you are making contact with customers or partners. In case you have 2 similar sites and you want to rebuild one of them, you could forward the website visitors to the other Internet site so that you can avoid losing potential clients, while you'll still be able to access the administrator area for the first website and improve it.
