There are a lot of ways to redirect traffic from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is commonly preferred. In contrast to parking a domain, a URL forwarding 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 if you have a direct link to it and you can create email addresses or subdomains and use them. This sort of function has numerous practical uses - if you decide to switch your domain name, you can forward the visitors, but the e-mails with the old one shall still be active if you are making contact with clients or partners. When you have two similar sites and you want to rebuild one of them, you could redirect the traffic to the other site so that you can avoid losing potential customers, while you shall still be able to access the administrator area for the first website and improve it.
