There are various ways to forward website visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is commonly preferred. In contrast to parking a domain, a URL forwarding is feasible only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means essentially is that you may still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you may set up e-mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This kind of feature has many practical uses - if you decide to switch your domain name, you could forward the traffic, but the emails with the old one will still be active in case you are making contact with customers or partners. In case you have 2 very similar sites and you need to rebuild one of them, you may forward the visitors to the other site in order to prevent losing potential customers, while you'll still be able to access the admin area for the first Internet site and improve it.
