There are various ways to redirect visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is commonly 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 in simple terms is that you may still open any content in case you have a direct link to it and you may set up e mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This kind of function has numerous practical uses - if you decide to switch your domain address, you could forward the visitors, but the e-mails with the old one will still be active in case you are making contact with customers or partners. When you have two identical sites and you intend to rebuild one of them, you could forward the traffic to the other Internet site to prevent losing potential clients, while you will still be able to access the administration area for the first website and develop it.
