There are a number of ways to redirect site visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is often preferred. In contrast to parking a domain address, a URL forwarding is possible only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means essentially is that you may still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you may create e mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This kind of function has several practical uses - if you decide to switch your domain, you may redirect the visitors, but the e-mails with the old one will still be active in case you are communicating with clients or partners. If you have 2 identical Internet sites and you intend to rebuild one of them, you could redirect the website visitors to the other site in order to avoid losing potential clients, while you'll still be able to access the administrator area for the first site and develop it.
