There are various ways to redirect traffic from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is oftentimes favored. In contrast to parking a domain name, 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 in case you have a direct link to it and you can create email addresses or subdomains and use them. This type of function has many practical uses - if you want to switch your domain address, you could redirect the visitors, but the e-mails with the old one shall still be active in the event that you are communicating with customers or partners. When you have two very similar Internet sites and you would like to rebuild one of them, you could redirect the traffic to the other website so that you can avoid losing potential clients, while you will still be able to access the admin area for the first website and develop it.
