There are many ways to redirect site 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 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 may set up e mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This type of function has numerous practical uses - if you want to switch your domain address, you could redirect the visitors, but the e-mails with the old one shall still be active whenever you are getting in touch with clients or partners. When you have 2 very similar websites and you intend to rebuild one of them, you may redirect the traffic to the other Internet site in order to avoid losing potential customers, while you will still be able to access the admin area for the first site and develop it.
