There are various ways to forward website visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is often preferred. In contrast to parking a domain, a URL redirection is possible only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means in simple terms is that you can still open any content in case you have a direct link to it and you can create e-mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This sort of function has many practical uses - if you decide to switch your domain address, you can forward the visitors, but the emails with the old one will still be active whenever you are making contact with clients or partners. When you have two similar sites and you need to rebuild one of them, you could forward the visitors to the other Internet site in order to avoid losing potential customers, while you will still be able to access the admin area for the first website and develop it.
