There are a lot of ways to forward website visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is frequently recommended. In contrast to parking a domain address, a URL forwarding is possible only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means in simple terms is that you could still open any content in case you have a direct link to it and you may create e mail addresses or subdomains and use them. Such a feature has several practical uses - if you decide to switch your domain address, you can redirect the site visitors, but the e-mails with the old one shall still be active whenever you are communicating with customers or partners. If you have two identical Internet sites and you want to rebuild one of them, you could redirect the visitors to the other site so as to avoid losing potential clients, while you will still be able to access the administrator area for the first Internet site and develop it.
