There are many ways to redirect visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is oftentimes preferred. 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 can still open any content in case you have a direct link to it and you could create e mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This sort of function has many practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain, you may redirect the traffic, but the emails with the old one will still be active in the event that you are making contact with clients or partners. When you have two identical sites and you need to rebuild one of them, you can forward the website visitors to the other website so that you can avoid losing potential clients, while you shall still be able to access the administration area for the first site and develop it.
