There are many ways to redirect traffic from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is often favored. In contrast to parking a domain name, a URL forwarding is possible only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means essentially is that you could still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you can set up email addresses or subdomains and use them. This kind of feature has many practical uses - if you decide to switch your domain address, you can redirect the site visitors, but the emails with the old one shall still be active if you are communicating with clients or partners. When you have 2 identical Internet sites and you would like to rebuild one of them, you can redirect the website visitors to the other Internet site so as to avoid losing potential customers, while you will still be able to access the administrator area for the first site and develop it.
