There are various ways to redirect site visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is commonly preferred. In contrast to parking a domain name, a URL forwarding is possible only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means essentially is that you can still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you can create e-mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This kind of feature has numerous practical uses - if you want to switch your domain, you may redirect the site visitors, but the e-mail messages with the old one will still be active in the event that you are communicating with clients or partners. If you have 2 similar websites and you want to rebuild one of them, you may forward the website visitors to the other site so as to avoid losing potential clients, while you will still be able to access the administrator area for the first website and develop it.
