There are various ways to redirect visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is commonly favored. In contrast to parking a domain name, a URL redirection 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 can set up e-mail addresses or subdomains and use them. Such a feature has numerous practical uses - if you want to switch your domain address, you may forward the traffic, but the e-mails with the old one will still be active if you are communicating with clients or partners. When you have 2 very similar sites and you want to rebuild one of them, you can redirect the visitors to the other website in order to prevent losing potential customers, while you shall still be able to access the administrator area for the first site and improve it.
