There are many ways to forward site visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is often favored. In contrast to parking a domain name, a URL forwarding is possible only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means basically is that you could still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you can set up e-mail addresses or subdomains and use them. Such a function has several practical uses - if you want to switch your domain address, you could forward the site visitors, but the emails with the old one shall still be active whenever you are getting in touch with clients or partners. In case you have two very similar sites and you would like to rebuild one of them, you can redirect the traffic to the other site so as to avoid losing potential clients, while you will still be able to access the administration area for the first website and work on it.
