There are a number of ways to redirect site visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is frequently favored. In contrast to parking a domain name, a URL redirection is feasible only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means essentially is that you may still open any content in case you have a direct link to it and you may create email addresses or subdomains and use them. This type of feature has many practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain, you may redirect the traffic, but the emails with the old one shall still be active in the event that you are making contact with customers or partners. In case you have 2 identical websites and you would like to rebuild one of them, you could redirect the visitors to the other website so as to prevent losing potential customers, while you'll still be able to access the administration area for the first site and improve it.
