There are many ways to redirect traffic from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is commonly preferred. In contrast to parking a domain name, 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 may set up email addresses or subdomains and use them. This type of function has many practical uses - if you want to switch your domain name, you may redirect the traffic, but the e-mails with the old one shall still be active if you are getting in touch with clients or partners. In case you have two very similar sites and you want to rebuild one of them, you can redirect the website visitors to the other site so as to prevent losing potential clients, while you'll still be able to access the administrator area for the first site and work on it.
