There are many ways to redirect visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is frequently favored. In contrast to parking a domain, a URL redirection is feasible only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means essentially is that you could still open any content in case you have a direct link to it and you could set up e-mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This kind of feature has numerous practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain, you could redirect the traffic, but the e-mail messages with the old one will still be active in case you are communicating with customers or partners. When you have two very similar sites and you would like to rebuild one of them, you could redirect the visitors to the other Internet site to prevent losing potential customers, while you shall still be able to access the administration area for the first Internet site and work on it.
