There are a lot of ways to forward site visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is frequently favored. In contrast to parking a domain address, a URL forwarding is possible only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means basically is that you may still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you may create email addresses or subdomains and use them. This kind of function has several practical uses - if you decide 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. When you have two identical Internet sites and you would like to rebuild one of them, you could forward the traffic to the other site so as to avoid losing potential clients, while you shall still be able to access the administration area for the first site and work on it.
