There are a lot of ways to redirect site visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is often preferred. In contrast to parking a domain, a URL redirection is feasible only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means basically is that you can still open any content in case you have a direct link to it and you can create email addresses or subdomains and use them. This kind of function has many practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain, you can redirect the site visitors, but the e-mails with the old one shall still be active in case you are making contact with clients or partners. When you have two similar Internet sites and you need to rebuild one of them, you could redirect the site visitors to the other Internet site so as to avoid losing potential clients, while you shall still be able to access the administration area for the first site and develop it.
