There are a lot of ways to redirect site visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is frequently favored. In contrast to parking a domain, a URL forwarding is possible only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means in simple terms is that you may still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you can set up email addresses or subdomains and use them. Such a feature has lots of practical uses - if you want to switch your domain address, you could redirect the traffic, but the emails with the old one shall still be active whenever you are making contact with clients or partners. When you have two very similar websites and you need to rebuild one of them, you may forward the site visitors to the other site in order to prevent losing potential customers, while you shall still be able to access the administrator area for the first website and work on it.
