There are a lot of ways to redirect site visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is often 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 could still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you can create email addresses or subdomains and use them. This type of feature has many practical uses - if you want to switch your domain, you can forward the site visitors, but the e-mails with the old one shall still be active in case you are communicating with customers or partners. In case you have 2 similar websites and you need to rebuild one of them, you could redirect the site visitors to the other site so that you can avoid losing potential clients, while you will still be able to access the administrator area for the first Internet site and work on it.
