There are various ways to redirect traffic from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is commonly preferred. In contrast to parking a domain address, a URL redirection is possible only if the domain 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 set up e mail addresses or subdomains and use them. Such a function has several practical uses - if you decide to switch your domain address, you may redirect the visitors, but the e-mail messages with the old one shall still be active if you are getting in touch with clients or partners. If you have 2 identical websites and you want to rebuild one of them, you may redirect the website visitors to the other site so as to prevent losing potential clients, while you'll still be able to access the administration area for the first Internet site and develop it.
