There are a lot of ways to forward website visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is commonly favored. In contrast to parking a domain name, a URL forwarding is possible only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means basically is that you could still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you could set up email addresses or subdomains and use them. This kind of feature has many practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain name, you may 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. If you have 2 very similar sites and you want to rebuild one of them, you may forward the site visitors to the other Internet site so that you can prevent losing potential clients, while you will still be able to access the administrator area for the first site and develop it.
