There are many ways to redirect site visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is frequently preferred. In contrast to parking a domain name, a URL redirection is feasible only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means basically is that you may still open any content in case you have a direct link to it and you can create e-mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This type of function has several practical uses - if you decide to switch your domain address, you may redirect the visitors, but the e-mails with the old one shall still be active in case you are getting in touch with customers or partners. If you have two identical sites and you want to rebuild one of them, you may redirect the site visitors to the other Internet site to avoid losing potential clients, while you'll still be able to access the administration area for the first Internet site and develop it.
