There are a lot of ways to forward website visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is frequently recommended. In contrast to parking a domain name, a URL forwarding is feasible only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means essentially is that you can still open any content in case you have a direct link to it and you may create e mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This kind of feature has lots of practical uses - if you want to switch your domain, you could redirect the site visitors, but the emails with the old one will still be active in the event that you are getting in touch with clients or partners. When you have 2 identical Internet sites and you need to rebuild one of them, you could forward the traffic to the other website so as to prevent losing potential customers, while you shall still be able to access the admin area for the first site and work on it.
