There are a number of ways to redirect site visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is often recommended. In contrast to parking a domain address, a URL forwarding is feasible only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means essentially is that you can still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you can create e-mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This kind of function has numerous practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain address, you can redirect the site visitors, but the e-mails with the old one shall still be active in the event that you are making contact with clients or partners. When you have two very similar sites and you want to rebuild one of them, you could redirect the website visitors to the other website so that you can avoid losing potential clients, while you will still be able to access the admin area for the first website and develop it.
