There are many ways to forward visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is frequently preferred. In contrast to parking a domain name, a URL forwarding is feasible only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means essentially is that you could still open any content in case you have a direct link to it and you could create e mail addresses or subdomains and use them. Such a feature has numerous practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain address, you can redirect the site visitors, but the emails with the old one will still be active whenever you are communicating with clients or partners. If you have 2 similar sites and you want to rebuild one of them, you can redirect the site visitors to the other Internet site so as to avoid losing potential customers, while you shall still be able to access the administrator area for the first Internet site and develop it.
