There are a number of ways to forward website visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is often favored. In contrast to parking a domain name, a URL forwarding can be done only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means in simple terms is that you could still open any content in case you have a direct link to it and you can create e mail addresses or subdomains and use them. Such a feature has numerous practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain name, you can redirect the traffic, but the e-mails with the old one will still be active in case you are making contact with clients or partners. In case you have two similar Internet sites and you want to rebuild one of them, you may forward the visitors to the other site so as to prevent losing potential customers, while you will still be able to access the administration area for the first Internet site and develop it.
