There are many ways to redirect visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is frequently recommended. In contrast to parking a domain name, a URL redirection can be done only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means basically is that you may still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you can set up e mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This sort of function has numerous practical uses - if you decide to switch your domain, you could redirect the site visitors, but the emails with the old one will still be active whenever you are getting in touch with customers or partners. If you have two similar Internet sites and you need to rebuild one of them, you may forward the website visitors to the other Internet site in order to prevent losing potential customers, while you will still be able to access the administration area for the first Internet site and develop it.
