There are a lot of ways to forward site visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is oftentimes preferred. In contrast to parking a domain name, a URL redirection is possible only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means essentially 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. This kind of function has many practical uses - if you decide to switch your domain address, you could forward the traffic, but the e-mail messages with the old one will still be active if you are making contact with customers or partners. In case you have 2 very similar websites and you intend to rebuild one of them, you can redirect the visitors to the other site so that you can avoid losing potential clients, while you will still be able to access the admin area for the first Internet site and improve it.
