There are many ways to redirect visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is oftentimes favored. In contrast to parking a domain, a URL redirection can be done only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means basically is that you can still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you may create e mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This type of function has many practical uses - if you decide to switch your domain name, you may forward the site visitors, but the e-mail messages with the old one shall still be active whenever you are communicating with clients or partners. If you have 2 similar sites and you want to rebuild one of them, you can redirect the traffic to the other website in order to avoid losing potential customers, while you'll still be able to access the administrator area for the first site and work on it.
