There are a lot of ways to redirect website visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is oftentimes preferred. In contrast to parking a domain, a URL redirection is feasible only if the domain 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 e-mail addresses or subdomains and use them. Such a feature has lots of practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain name, you may forward the visitors, but the e-mail messages with the old one will still be active in case you are making contact with customers or partners. When you have 2 similar Internet sites and you want to rebuild one of them, you could redirect the traffic to the other website to prevent losing potential customers, while you shall still be able to access the administration area for the first Internet site and improve it.
