There are a number of ways to forward site visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is commonly favored. In contrast to parking a domain, a URL redirection is possible only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means in simple terms is that you can still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you could set up email addresses or subdomains and use them. This kind of function has numerous practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain name, you can redirect the traffic, but the e-mail messages with the old one will still be active whenever you are making contact with clients or partners. In case you have two identical websites and you want to rebuild one of them, you could forward the visitors to the other website so that you can prevent losing potential clients, while you'll still be able to access the admin area for the first website and work on it.
