There are a lot of ways to forward visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is oftentimes recommended. In contrast to parking a domain name, a URL redirection can be done only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means basically is that you can still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you may create e mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This kind of feature has several practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain address, you can forward the site visitors, but the e-mail messages with the old one will still be active in the event that you are communicating with customers or partners. If you have two identical Internet sites and you need to rebuild one of them, you could redirect the traffic to the other site so that you can avoid losing potential clients, while you shall still be able to access the administrator area for the first website and work on it.
