There are many ways to forward website visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is often favored. In contrast to parking a domain address, a URL redirection can be done only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means essentially is that you could still open any content in case you have a direct link to it and you could set up email addresses or subdomains and use them. This kind of function has numerous practical uses - if you want to switch your domain address, you can redirect the traffic, 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. When you have two identical Internet sites and you need to rebuild one of them, you may forward the site visitors to the other Internet site so that you can prevent losing potential customers, while you shall still be able to access the administrator area for the first site and develop it.
