There are many ways to redirect website visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is oftentimes favored. In contrast to parking a domain address, a URL forwarding can be done only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means in simple terms is that you could still open any content in case you have a direct link to it and you can set up e mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This type of function has many practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain name, 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 getting in touch with clients or partners. If you have 2 similar websites and you need to rebuild one of them, you may forward the website visitors to the other website so as to prevent losing potential customers, while you'll still be able to access the administration area for the first website and develop it.
