There are various ways to redirect website visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is oftentimes favored. 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 could still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you may create email addresses or subdomains and use them. This sort of feature has numerous practical uses - if you decide to switch your domain, you can redirect the traffic, 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 websites and you need to rebuild one of them, you may redirect the site visitors to the other Internet site to avoid losing potential customers, while you'll still be able to access the administration area for the first Internet site and work on it.
