There are many ways to redirect website visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is frequently preferred. In contrast to parking a domain, a URL redirection is possible only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means basically is that you could 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. Such a function has many practical uses - if you want to switch your domain, you can redirect the visitors, but the e-mail messages with the old one will still be active if you are getting in touch with clients or partners. In case you have two very similar websites and you would like to rebuild one of them, you can redirect the visitors to the other site in order to prevent losing potential clients, while you will still be able to access the admin area for the first Internet site and develop it.
