There are a number of ways to forward site 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 in question is hosted. What this means in simple terms is that you may still open any content in case you have a direct link to it and you may set up email addresses or subdomains and use them. This sort of feature has lots of practical uses - if you want to switch your domain, you could redirect the visitors, but the emails with the old one will still be active whenever you are getting in touch with customers or partners. When you have two very similar Internet sites and you intend to rebuild one of them, you could redirect the site visitors to the other website so as to avoid losing potential clients, while you shall still be able to access the admin area for the first site and work on it.
