Wondering what a URL Redirector is and how URL redirection works in general?
There are a lot of ways to redirect site visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is oftentimes favored. In contrast to parking a domain name, a URL forwarding is feasible only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means basically is that you could still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you can create e mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This kind of feature has many practical uses - if you want to switch your domain, you could forward the visitors, but the e-mails with the old one will still be active whenever you are getting in touch with customers or partners. When you have two very similar sites and you intend to rebuild one of them, you could redirect the visitors to the other site to prevent losing potential customers, while you shall still be able to access the administration area for the first site and improve it.
