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 forwarding is feasible only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means essentially is that you may still open any content in case you have a direct link to it and you could create e-mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This type of function has lots of practical uses - if you decide to switch your domain address, you may redirect the site visitors, but the e-mails with the old one will still be active in case you are communicating with clients or partners. If you have two similar Internet sites and you would like to rebuild one of them, you could redirect the website visitors to the other Internet site in order to prevent losing potential clients, while you shall still be able to access the administrator area for the first site and develop it.
