There are various ways to redirect traffic from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is frequently recommended. In contrast to parking a domain name, a URL forwarding can be done only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means in simple terms is that you can still open any content in case you have a direct link to it and you can set up e-mail addresses or subdomains and use them. Such a function has numerous practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain, you could forward the traffic, but the e-mail messages with the old one shall still be active if you are making contact with customers or partners. In case you have two identical sites and you intend to rebuild one of them, you could redirect the site visitors to the other website so that you can prevent losing potential clients, while you will still be able to access the administrator area for the first website and develop it.
