There are many ways to redirect traffic from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is often recommended. In contrast to parking a domain, a URL redirection is possible only if the domain name 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 may create email addresses or subdomains and use them. This kind of feature has lots of practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain, you can forward the traffic, but the e-mails with the old one will still be active in the event that you are communicating with customers or partners. When you have 2 similar sites and you intend to rebuild one of them, you can forward the site visitors to the other website in order to avoid losing potential customers, while you will still be able to access the admin area for the first Internet site and work on it.

The tool has complex functions for more tech-savvy users too, including the option to pick the redirection type - 301 (permanent redirection) or 302 (temporary redirection), the redirection method - direct or match, and so on.
