There are a lot of ways to redirect traffic from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is oftentimes favored. In contrast to parking a domain, a URL forwarding is feasible only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means basically 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. This type of function has several practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain address, you can forward the traffic, 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 need to rebuild one of them, you can forward the site visitors to the other Internet site to prevent losing potential clients, while you'll still be able to access the admin area for the first website and improve it.
