There are a lot of ways to redirect traffic from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is oftentimes recommended. In contrast to parking a domain, a URL redirection is possible only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means in simple terms is that you can still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you could set up e mail addresses or subdomains and use them. Such a feature has several practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain, you could redirect the site visitors, but the e-mail messages with the old one will still be active if you are making contact with customers or partners. In case you have 2 very similar Internet sites and you want to rebuild one of them, you may forward the traffic to the other Internet site to prevent losing potential clients, while you will still be able to access the admin area for the first Internet site and work on it.
