There are a lot of 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 name, a URL redirection is possible only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means basically is that you could still open any content in case you have a direct link to it and you could set up e mail addresses or subdomains and use them. Such a function has many practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain name, you could forward the visitors, but the e-mails with the old one will still be active whenever you are getting in touch with clients or partners. When you have 2 identical sites and you want to rebuild one of them, you could forward the website visitors to the other Internet site in order to prevent losing potential clients, while you'll still be able to access the administrator area for the first site and improve it.
