There are various ways to redirect traffic from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is commonly recommended. In contrast to parking a domain, a URL redirection is feasible only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means in simple terms is that you could still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you could set up email addresses or subdomains and use them. This kind of function has lots of practical uses - if you want to switch your domain address, you can redirect the site visitors, but the e-mail messages with the old one shall still be active if you are getting in touch with customers or partners. When you have 2 very similar sites and you want to rebuild one of them, you may redirect the website visitors to the other Internet site in order to prevent losing potential clients, while you will still be able to access the administration area for the first site and improve it.
