There are many ways to redirect traffic from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is frequently preferred. In contrast to parking a domain, a URL forwarding can be done 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 can create email addresses or subdomains and use them. This kind of feature has many practical uses - if you want to switch your domain name, you can redirect the visitors, but the e-mail messages with the old one shall still be active in the event that you are making contact with clients or partners. If you have two similar sites and you need to rebuild one of them, you could forward the visitors to the other Internet site so that you can avoid losing potential clients, while you shall still be able to access the admin area for the first Internet site and improve it.
