There are various ways to redirect traffic from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is often preferred. In contrast to parking a domain name, a URL redirection is feasible only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means essentially is that you may still open any content in case you have a direct link to it and you can set up email addresses or subdomains and use them. This sort of function has numerous practical uses - if you want to switch your domain name, you may redirect the traffic, but the e-mail messages with the old one will still be active in case you are getting in touch with clients or partners. When you have 2 identical Internet sites and you would like to rebuild one of them, you can forward the traffic to the other Internet site to prevent losing potential clients, while you'll still be able to access the admin area for the first site and develop it.
