There are a lot of ways to forward visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is often favored. In contrast to parking a domain address, a URL forwarding can be done only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means in simple terms is that you could still open any content in case you have a direct link to it and you can set up email addresses or subdomains and use them. This sort of feature has many practical uses - if you decide to switch your domain name, you may forward the traffic, but the emails with the old one will still be active in the event that you are communicating with customers or partners. In case you have two similar Internet sites and you want to rebuild one of them, you could forward the visitors to the other site to avoid losing potential customers, while you shall still be able to access the admin area for the first Internet site and develop it.
