There are a number of ways to redirect visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is oftentimes favored. In contrast to parking a domain address, a URL redirection is possible only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means in simple terms is that you may still open any content in case you have a direct link to it and you may create e mail addresses or subdomains and use them. Such a feature has many practical uses - if you decide to switch your domain name, you may redirect the site visitors, but the emails with the old one shall still be active whenever you are making contact with customers or partners. If you have two similar sites and you intend to rebuild one of them, you can redirect the site visitors to the other Internet site so that you can avoid losing potential clients, while you'll still be able to access the administrator area for the first site and improve it.
