There are various ways to redirect site 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 feasible only if the domain name 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 may set up email 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 visitors, but the e-mails with the old one will still be active whenever you are making contact with customers or partners. When you have two similar Internet sites and you intend to rebuild one of them, you could redirect the site visitors to the other website so as to prevent losing potential customers, while you shall still be able to access the administrator area for the first website and work on it.
