There are a lot of ways to redirect website visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is commonly 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 may 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 sort of function has lots of practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain address, you can redirect the traffic, but the e-mails with the old one shall still be active if you are communicating with customers or partners. In case you have 2 identical websites and you need to rebuild one of them, you can forward the website visitors to the other website so that you can avoid losing potential clients, while you will still be able to access the admin area for the first website and work on it.
