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