There are many 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, a URL redirection is possible only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means basically is that you could still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you may set up e-mail addresses or subdomains and use them. Such a feature has lots of practical uses - if you want to switch your domain address, you can forward the visitors, but the e-mail messages with the old one will still be active if you are making contact with clients or partners. When you have 2 similar Internet sites and you intend to rebuild one of them, you can redirect the site visitors to the other Internet site to prevent losing potential clients, while you will still be able to access the admin area for the first website and develop it.
