There are a lot of ways to redirect website visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is often 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 want to switch your domain name, you could redirect the traffic, but the e-mails with the old one will still be active if you are getting in touch with customers or partners. If you have two similar Internet sites and you intend to rebuild one of them, you may redirect the website visitors to the other site in order to avoid losing potential clients, while you'll still be able to access the administrator area for the first website and develop it.
