There are various ways to redirect traffic from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is frequently favored. In contrast to parking a domain address, a URL redirection is possible only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means in simple terms is that you may still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you may create email addresses or subdomains and use them. This type of function has many practical uses - if you decide to switch your domain name, you can redirect the visitors, but the e-mails with the old one will still be active whenever you are making contact with clients or partners. When you have 2 very similar Internet sites and you would like to rebuild one of them, you may forward the site visitors to the other site to prevent losing potential customers, while you will still be able to access the admin area for the first Internet site and work on it.
