There are a lot of ways to forward site visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is often recommended. In contrast to parking a domain, a URL redirection can be done only if the domain 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 may set up e mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This sort of feature has numerous practical uses - if you want to switch your domain name, you may forward the traffic, but the e-mail messages with the old one will still be active whenever you are communicating with customers or partners. When you have two identical Internet sites and you want to rebuild one of them, you can forward the visitors to the other site to prevent losing potential customers, while you will still be able to access the admin area for the first website and work on it.
