There are various ways to redirect site visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is commonly preferred. In contrast to parking a domain name, a URL redirection can be done only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means in simple terms is that you could 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 function has lots of practical uses - if you decide to switch your domain, you could forward the site visitors, but the emails with the old one shall still be active whenever you are making contact with clients or partners. When you have two identical Internet sites and you intend to rebuild one of them, you may redirect the visitors to the other website in order to avoid losing potential clients, while you shall still be able to access the administrator area for the first website and develop it.
