There are various ways to redirect traffic from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is commonly favored. In contrast to parking a domain, a URL redirection is feasible only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means in simple terms is that you could still open any content in case you have a direct link to it and you may set up e-mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This type of function has several practical uses - if you want to switch your domain, you can redirect the traffic, but the emails with the old one shall still be active in case you are communicating with customers or partners. If you have 2 similar sites and you would like to rebuild one of them, you may forward the website visitors to the other site so that you can avoid losing potential customers, while you'll still be able to access the administrator area for the first website and improve it.
