There are a number of ways to redirect website visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is oftentimes favored. In contrast to parking a domain, a URL redirection is possible only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means essentially is that you may still open any content in case you have a direct link to it and you may set up email addresses or subdomains and use them. Such a feature has numerous practical uses - if you want to switch your domain name, you can redirect the visitors, but the e-mails with the old one will still be active whenever you are communicating with clients or partners. When you have 2 similar websites and you intend to rebuild one of them, you can forward the visitors to the other site to prevent losing potential clients, while you shall still be able to access the admin area for the first Internet site and work on it.
