There are a number of ways to redirect visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is often preferred. In contrast to parking a domain address, a URL redirection is feasible only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means in simple terms is that you can still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you can create e mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This sort of function has many practical uses - if you want to switch your domain name, you may redirect the visitors, but the e-mail messages with the old one shall still be active in the event that you are making contact with customers or partners. When you have 2 identical websites and you need to rebuild one of them, you could redirect the traffic to the other site to prevent losing potential customers, while you'll still be able to access the admin area for the first Internet site and improve it.
