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 address, a URL forwarding is feasible only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means essentially is that you can 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 many practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain name, you can redirect the traffic, but the emails with the old one shall still be active in the event that you are getting in touch with clients or partners. In case you have two very similar Internet sites and you need to rebuild one of them, you may redirect the visitors to the other site so as to prevent losing potential customers, while you shall still be able to access the administrator area for the first website and work on it.
