There are many ways to redirect site visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is commonly recommended. In contrast to parking a domain name, a URL forwarding is possible only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means basically is that you can still open any content in case you have a direct link to it and you can set up email addresses or subdomains and use them. This sort of feature has many practical uses - if you decide to switch your domain address, you may forward the site visitors, but the e-mail messages with the old one will still be active whenever you are getting in touch with clients or partners. If you have two identical Internet sites and you need to rebuild one of them, you can forward the site visitors to the other Internet site in order to prevent losing potential customers, while you will still be able to access the administrator area for the first site and work on it.
