There are a lot of ways to redirect website visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is oftentimes preferred. In contrast to parking a domain name, a URL redirection can be done only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means essentially is that you can still open any content in case you have a direct link to it and you may set up e mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This type of feature has numerous practical uses - if you decide to switch your domain address, you may redirect the site visitors, but the e-mail messages with the old one shall still be active if you are making contact with customers or partners. In case you have two very similar Internet sites and you need to rebuild one of them, you could forward the site visitors to the other Internet site so as to prevent losing potential customers, while you will still be able to access the admin area for the first website and develop it.
