There are many ways to redirect traffic from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is frequently recommended. In contrast to parking a domain, a URL redirection is possible only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means essentially is that you may still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you could create e mail addresses or subdomains and use them. Such a function has several practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain name, you could forward the traffic, but the e-mails with the old one will still be active if you are communicating with clients or partners. In case you have two similar sites and you want to rebuild one of them, you may redirect the site visitors to the other site so as to avoid losing potential customers, while you'll still be able to access the administrator area for the first website and work on it.
