There are a number of ways to forward website visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is commonly favored. In contrast to parking a domain address, a URL redirection is feasible only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means essentially is that you could still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you may create email addresses or subdomains and use them. Such a function has lots of practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain name, you may forward the site visitors, but the e-mail messages with the old one shall still be active in the event that you are communicating with customers or partners. In case you have 2 very similar websites and you need to rebuild one of them, you could forward the website visitors to the other Internet site in order to prevent losing potential customers, while you shall still be able to access the admin area for the first Internet site and improve it.
