There are a number of ways to redirect traffic from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is frequently recommended. In contrast to parking a domain name, a URL forwarding can be done only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means basically is that you could still open any content in case you have a direct link to it and you can set up email addresses or subdomains and use them. This kind of function has lots of practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain name, you could redirect the site visitors, but the emails with the old one shall still be active if you are communicating with clients or partners. In case you have 2 similar sites and you need to rebuild one of them, you can redirect the traffic to the other site in order to prevent losing potential customers, while you shall still be able to access the administrator area for the first Internet site and improve it.
