There are various ways to redirect site visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is oftentimes preferred. In contrast to parking a domain, a URL redirection is feasible only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means basically 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 several practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain name, you may forward the visitors, but the e-mail messages with the old one will still be active in the event that you are making contact with customers or partners. In case you have two very similar sites and you need to rebuild one of them, you can forward the traffic to the other site so as to avoid losing potential clients, while you shall still be able to access the administration area for the first website and work on it.
