There are a lot of ways to forward traffic from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is oftentimes favored. In contrast to parking a domain name, a URL redirection can be done only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means basically is that you can still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you may set up email addresses or subdomains and use them. This kind of function has many practical uses - if you decide to switch your domain address, you could redirect the site visitors, but the e-mail messages with the old one will still be active in the event that you are making contact with clients or partners. In case you have 2 very similar sites and you intend to rebuild one of them, you may redirect the website visitors to the other Internet site so as to prevent losing potential clients, while you shall still be able to access the administrator area for the first Internet site and improve it.
