Just what is a URL Redirector and how does URL redirection function?
There are a lot of ways to forward website visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is often preferred. In contrast to parking a domain, a URL forwarding is feasible only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means basically is that you may still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you may create email addresses or subdomains and use them. Such a function has lots of practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain, you could forward the visitors, but the e-mails with the old one will still be active in the event that you are getting in touch with customers or partners. If you have 2 similar sites and you want to rebuild one of them, you can forward the website visitors to the other website to avoid losing potential customers, while you shall still be able to access the admin area for the first Internet site and improve it.
