There are a number of ways to forward website visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is commonly preferred. In contrast to parking a domain address, a URL redirection is possible only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means essentially is that you can still open any content in case you have a direct link to it and you may create email addresses or subdomains and use them. This sort of function has numerous practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain address, you can redirect the traffic, but the e-mail messages with the old one will still be active whenever you are making contact with customers or partners. When you have two identical websites and you would like to rebuild one of them, you could redirect the site visitors to the other Internet site in order to prevent losing potential clients, while you will still be able to access the admin area for the first Internet site and work on it.
