There are a lot of ways to redirect site visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is oftentimes preferred. In contrast to parking a domain, a URL forwarding is feasible only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means in simple terms is that you can still open any content in case you have a direct link to it and you could create e-mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This kind of feature has several practical uses - if you want to switch your domain name, you may redirect the visitors, but the e-mail messages with the old one will still be active in the event that you are communicating with customers or partners. When you have 2 identical sites and you need to rebuild one of them, you could redirect the site visitors to the other site to prevent losing potential customers, while you shall still be able to access the administrator area for the first Internet site and work on it.
