There are a lot of ways to forward site visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is commonly preferred. In contrast to parking a domain address, a URL redirection is feasible only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means basically is that you could still open any content in case you have a direct link to it and you could set up e-mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This kind of feature has numerous practical uses - if you decide to switch your domain name, you may redirect the visitors, but the e-mail messages with the old one will still be active whenever you are communicating with clients or partners. In case you have two very similar sites and you intend to rebuild one of them, you can redirect the traffic to the other site to prevent losing potential customers, while you'll still be able to access the administrator area for the first Internet site and work on it.
