There are a number of ways to redirect traffic from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is often recommended. In contrast to parking a domain name, a URL forwarding can be done 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 can set up e-mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This type of feature has several practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain address, you may forward the site visitors, but the e-mails with the old one shall still be active if you are getting in touch with clients or partners. When you have 2 very similar sites and you would like to rebuild one of them, you may redirect the visitors to the other Internet site to avoid losing potential customers, while you'll still be able to access the administrator area for the first Internet site and work on it.
