There are many ways to redirect website visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is oftentimes recommended. In contrast to parking a domain name, a URL forwarding is possible only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means basically is that you could still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you can set up e-mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This sort of function has lots of practical uses - if you decide to switch your domain, you could redirect the traffic, but the e-mails with the old one shall still be active in the event that you are making contact with clients or partners. If you have 2 identical sites and you need to rebuild one of them, you may redirect the visitors to the other website so as to prevent losing potential clients, while you'll still be able to access the administration area for the first website and improve it.
