There are various ways to redirect traffic from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is frequently preferred. In contrast to parking a domain, a URL forwarding can be done only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means in simple terms is that you could 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 feature has several practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain, you can redirect the traffic, but the emails with the old one will still be active in case you are communicating with clients or partners. When you have two similar sites and you would like to rebuild one of them, you could redirect the website visitors to the other site so as to prevent losing potential clients, while you shall still be able to access the administrator area for the first website and improve it.
