There are many ways to redirect site visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is frequently favored. In contrast to parking a domain name, a URL forwarding can be done 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 email addresses or subdomains and use them. This type of function has several practical uses - if you want to switch your domain name, you could forward the visitors, but the e-mail messages with the old one will still be active whenever you are getting in touch with clients or partners. When you have two identical websites and you intend to rebuild one of them, you can forward the website visitors to the other site so as to avoid losing potential clients, while you'll still be able to access the admin area for the first site and work on it.
