There are a number of ways to forward site 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 possible only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means essentially is that you can still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you could set up e mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This sort of feature has several practical uses - if you decide to switch your domain address, you may redirect the visitors, but the e-mails with the old one will still be active in the event that you are making contact with customers or partners. When you have two similar sites and you would like to rebuild one of them, you can forward the traffic to the other site in order to prevent losing potential clients, while you'll still be able to access the administration area for the first Internet site and develop it.
