There are a lot of ways to redirect site visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is commonly recommended. In contrast to parking a domain name, a URL redirection is feasible 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 create e-mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This kind of function has numerous practical uses - if you decide to switch your domain address, you may forward the site visitors, but the e-mail messages with the old one shall still be active if you are getting in touch with clients or partners. If you have 2 identical websites and you need to rebuild one of them, you can redirect the traffic to the other site so that you can prevent losing potential clients, while you'll still be able to access the admin area for the first website and work on it.
