There are various ways to redirect site visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is often favored. In contrast to parking a domain, a URL redirection is possible only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means in simple terms is that you may still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you can set up email addresses or subdomains and use them. This kind of feature has many practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain name, you could forward the site visitors, but the e-mails with the old one will still be active whenever you are making contact with clients or partners. In case you have two very similar websites and you want to rebuild one of them, you can forward the visitors to the other Internet site to avoid losing potential customers, while you will still be able to access the administrator area for the first site and develop it.
