There are a lot of ways to forward website visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is frequently preferred. In contrast to parking a domain name, a URL redirection can be done only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means in simple terms is that you may 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 kind of function has several practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain, you could forward the traffic, but the e-mails with the old one shall still be active in the event that you are communicating with customers or partners. When you have two very similar Internet sites and you want to rebuild one of them, you may redirect the traffic to the other website so as to avoid losing potential clients, while you shall still be able to access the admin area for the first Internet site and work on it.
