There are many ways to redirect traffic from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is frequently preferred. In contrast to parking a domain, a URL forwarding 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 could set up e-mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This sort of function has several practical uses - if you decide to switch your domain address, you could forward the traffic, but the emails with the old one will still be active in the event that you are making contact with clients or partners. If you have two identical sites and you need to rebuild one of them, you can redirect the traffic 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 improve it.
