There are a number of ways to forward visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is frequently preferred. In contrast to parking a domain name, a URL redirection is feasible only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means essentially 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 choose to switch your domain name, you can forward the site visitors, but the e-mail messages with the old one shall still be active in case you are getting in touch with clients or partners. In case you have two very similar sites and you want to rebuild one of them, you may forward the traffic to the other Internet site so as to prevent losing potential customers, while you'll still be able to access the admin area for the first site and work on it.
