There are many ways to redirect website visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is often recommended. In contrast to parking a domain address, a URL forwarding is possible only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means essentially is that you can still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you could set up email addresses or subdomains and use them. Such a feature has lots of practical uses - if you decide to switch your domain name, you could forward the traffic, but the e-mails with the old one shall still be active in case you are getting in touch with clients or partners. In case you have 2 similar Internet sites and you would like to rebuild one of them, you may forward the site visitors to the other website so as to avoid losing potential customers, while you'll still be able to access the administrator area for the first website and improve it.
