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 can be done only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means basically is that you may still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you could set up email addresses or subdomains and use them. This sort of function has numerous practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain name, you can redirect the site visitors, but the emails with the old one will still be active in case you are communicating with clients or partners. In case you have two very similar websites and you intend to rebuild one of them, you may forward the website visitors to the other website in order to prevent losing potential clients, while you shall still be able to access the administration area for the first website and develop it.
