There are various ways to redirect 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 can be done only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means basically is that you can still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you can set up e-mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This kind of feature has lots of practical uses - if you want to switch your domain address, you may forward the visitors, but the e-mail messages with the old one shall still be active in the event that you are getting in touch with customers or partners. If you have two similar sites and you want to rebuild one of them, you may redirect the traffic to the other site in order to prevent losing potential clients, while you shall still be able to access the admin area for the first Internet site and develop it.
