There are various ways to redirect visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is oftentimes favored. In contrast to parking a domain name, a URL forwarding is possible 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 create email addresses or subdomains and use them. This type of function has numerous practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain, you could forward the visitors, but the e-mail messages with the old one will still be active in the event that you are making contact with customers or partners. In case you have two similar sites and you would like to rebuild one of them, you could redirect the website visitors to the other site so as to avoid losing potential customers, while you will still be able to access the admin area for the first Internet site and work on it.
