There are many ways to forward visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is oftentimes favored. In contrast to parking a domain name, a URL forwarding is possible only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means in simple terms is that you may still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you may set up email addresses or subdomains and use them. This sort of feature has numerous practical uses - if you want to switch your domain address, you can forward the site visitors, but the emails with the old one will still be active whenever you are getting in touch with clients or partners. When you have 2 similar Internet sites and you intend to rebuild one of them, you can redirect the traffic to the other site to prevent losing potential customers, while you'll still be able to access the administration area for the first website and work on it.
