There are various ways to redirect website visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is oftentimes preferred. In contrast to parking a domain, a URL forwarding is feasible only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means essentially is that you may still open any content if 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 can forward the site visitors, but the e-mail messages with the old one will still be active if you are making contact with clients or partners. When you have 2 very similar Internet sites and you need to rebuild one of them, you could forward the traffic to the other Internet site to avoid losing potential clients, while you will still be able to access the admin area for the first site and work on it.
