There are many ways to forward site visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is frequently recommended. In contrast to parking a domain, a URL forwarding can be done 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 can create e-mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This type of feature has several practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain name, you could forward the visitors, but the e-mails with the old one shall still be active in case you are getting in touch with customers or partners. If you have 2 very similar Internet sites and you intend to rebuild one of them, you could redirect the website visitors to the other website so that you can prevent losing potential clients, while you'll still be able to access the administration area for the first site and develop it.
