There are a lot of ways to redirect traffic from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is often recommended. In contrast to parking a domain name, a URL redirection is possible 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 could set up e-mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This type of feature has several practical uses - if you decide to switch your domain name, you could forward the site visitors, but the emails with the old one will still be active in the event that you are making contact with customers or partners. When you have two very similar sites and you want to rebuild one of them, you may forward the traffic to the other website so as to prevent losing potential customers, while you will still be able to access the administrator area for the first Internet site and work on it.
