There are many 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, a URL forwarding is feasible only if the domain 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 can set up e mail addresses or subdomains and use them. Such a feature has lots of practical uses - if you want to switch your domain name, you could redirect the site visitors, but the emails with the old one shall still be active in case you are communicating with clients or partners. In case you have two similar Internet sites and you need to rebuild one of them, you can redirect the visitors to the other website so as to avoid losing potential clients, while you will still be able to access the administration area for the first website and develop it.
