There are various ways to redirect traffic from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is frequently recommended. In contrast to parking a domain address, a URL forwarding is possible only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means basically is that you may 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. This type of feature has lots of practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain name, you can redirect the traffic, but the emails with the old one shall still be active in case you are communicating with clients or partners. In case you have two similar Internet sites and you want to rebuild one of them, you can forward the visitors to the other Internet site so as to avoid losing potential customers, while you'll still be able to access the administrator area for the first Internet site and develop it.
