There are various ways to redirect traffic from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is oftentimes favored. In contrast to parking a domain name, a URL redirection is feasible only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means essentially is that you could still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you could create e-mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This sort of function has several practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain name, you may redirect the traffic, but the emails with the old one will still be active in case you are making contact with clients or partners. When you have two similar websites and you would like to rebuild one of them, you could redirect the traffic to the other site so as to prevent losing potential clients, while you will still be able to access the administration area for the first site and improve it.
