There are a number of ways to forward site visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is oftentimes favored. In contrast to parking a domain, a URL forwarding can be done only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means basically is that you can still open any content in case you have a direct link to it and you may set up e mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This type of feature has many practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain name, you could redirect the visitors, but the e-mails with the old one will still be active in the event that you are getting in touch with customers or partners. If you have two identical sites and you want to rebuild one of them, you may forward the traffic to the other Internet site so that you can prevent losing potential clients, while you'll still be able to access the administrator area for the first site and improve it.
