There are many ways to redirect visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is oftentimes preferred. In contrast to parking a domain address, a URL redirection is possible only if the domain 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 can create e mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This kind of function has many practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain, you could redirect the visitors, but the emails with the old one will still be active whenever you are making contact with clients or partners. When you have 2 very similar websites and you need to rebuild one of them, you could forward the website visitors to the other Internet site to avoid losing potential clients, while you will still be able to access the administrator area for the first website and develop it.
