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 possible only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means essentially is that you could still open any content in case you have a direct link to it and you could create e-mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This type of function has several practical uses - if you want to switch your domain name, you may forward the site visitors, but the emails with the old one will still be active in case you are getting in touch with customers or partners. When you have 2 similar sites and you would like to rebuild one of them, you can redirect the website visitors to the other website so that you can avoid losing potential clients, while you'll still be able to access the admin area for the first Internet site and develop it.
