There are many ways to forward visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is often favored. In contrast to parking a domain address, a URL redirection is possible only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means basically is that you may still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you can create e mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This sort of function has several practical uses - if you decide to switch your domain name, you could redirect the traffic, but the e-mails with the old one shall still be active in case you are making contact with customers or partners. In case you have 2 identical websites and you need to rebuild one of them, you could forward the website visitors to the other site in order to prevent losing potential clients, while you shall still be able to access the administrator area for the first site and improve it.
