There are various ways to redirect website visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is commonly recommended. In contrast to parking a domain address, a URL redirection is feasible only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means in simple terms is that you could still open any content in case 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 decide to switch your domain name, you could forward the site visitors, but the e-mail messages with the old one will still be active in the event that you are getting in touch with customers or partners. When you have two very similar Internet sites and you intend to rebuild one of them, you can redirect the site visitors to the other website in order to avoid losing potential clients, while you shall still be able to access the admin area for the first website and develop it.
