There are many ways to redirect traffic from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is frequently favored. In contrast to parking a domain address, 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 in case you have a direct link to it and you could create e mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This type of function has many practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain address, you could forward the site visitors, but the e-mails with the old one shall still be active if you are getting in touch with clients or partners. If you have two very similar Internet sites and you want to rebuild one of them, you can redirect the traffic to the other site so as to prevent losing potential customers, while you shall still be able to access the administration area for the first Internet site and develop it.
