There are various ways to redirect traffic from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is oftentimes preferred. In contrast to parking a domain name, a URL forwarding is feasible only if the domain name 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 could create e mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This sort of feature has numerous practical uses - if you want to switch your domain address, you could forward the visitors, but the e-mail messages with the old one shall still be active whenever you are communicating with customers or partners. If you have two identical websites and you want to rebuild one of them, you may forward the traffic to the other website to prevent losing potential clients, while you will still be able to access the administrator area for the first Internet site and improve it.
