There are many ways to redirect site visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is frequently recommended. In contrast to parking a domain name, a URL redirection is possible only if the domain 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. This type of function has many practical uses - if you decide to switch your domain address, you could forward the traffic, but the emails with the old one shall still be active in the event that you are getting in touch with customers or partners. In case you have two identical websites and you intend to rebuild one of them, you could redirect the website visitors to the other site so that you can prevent losing potential clients, while you will still be able to access the admin area for the first website and work on it.
