There are a number of ways to forward site visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is oftentimes favored. In contrast to parking a domain, a URL forwarding is possible only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means basically is that you may 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 function has many practical uses - if you want to switch your domain, you may forward the traffic, but the e-mails with the old one shall still be active whenever you are getting in touch with clients or partners. When you have two similar Internet sites and you would like to rebuild one of them, you could forward the traffic to the other Internet site in order to prevent losing potential customers, while you'll still be able to access the admin area for the first site and work on it.
