There are many ways to redirect site visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is frequently favored. 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 could still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you can create email addresses or subdomains and use them. This type of function has several practical uses - if you decide to switch your domain, you could forward the traffic, but the emails with the old one will still be active in the event that you are communicating with clients or partners. If you have 2 very similar Internet sites and you need to rebuild one of them, you can forward the site visitors to the other site in order to prevent losing potential customers, while you will still be able to access the administration area for the first Internet site and develop it.
