There are various ways to redirect traffic from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is oftentimes favored. In contrast to parking a domain, a URL forwarding is feasible only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means in simple terms is that you may still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you can create email addresses or subdomains and use them. This kind of feature has lots of practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain address, you may forward the traffic, but the emails with the old one shall still be active whenever you are getting in touch with clients or partners. If you have 2 similar sites and you need to rebuild one of them, you may redirect the site visitors to the other Internet site in order to prevent losing potential clients, while you will still be able to access the administration area for the first Internet site and work on it.
