There are a lot of ways to redirect website visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is often recommended. In contrast to parking a domain name, a URL forwarding is feasible only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means in simple terms is that you may still open any content in case you have a direct link to it and you may set up e-mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This type of function has numerous practical uses - if you decide to switch your domain, you could forward the visitors, but the e-mails with the old one will still be active whenever you are communicating with customers or partners. If you have two very similar sites and you want to rebuild one of them, you may redirect the site 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 Internet site and work on it.
