There are various ways to forward traffic from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is frequently recommended. In contrast to parking a domain address, a URL redirection can be done only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means in simple terms is that you can 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. This kind of function has several practical uses - if you want to switch your domain name, you can redirect the traffic, but the e-mail messages with the old one will still be active if you are communicating with clients or partners. If you have two identical websites and you need to rebuild one of them, you may forward the site visitors to the other Internet site to prevent losing potential clients, while you shall still be able to access the administrator area for the first Internet site and work on it.
