There are many ways to forward visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is commonly recommended. 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 can still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you could create e mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This sort of feature has lots of practical uses - if you want to switch your domain address, you can forward the traffic, but the e-mails with the old one will still be active whenever you are making contact with clients or partners. When you have 2 similar Internet sites and you want to rebuild one of them, you could redirect the site visitors to the other Internet site in order to avoid losing potential clients, while you'll still be able to access the admin area for the first Internet site and develop it.
