There are various ways to forward site visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is often favored. In contrast to parking a domain address, a URL forwarding can be done only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means basically is that you could still open any content in case you have a direct link to it and you could 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, you may redirect the traffic, but the e-mail messages with the old one will still be active in the event that you are communicating with customers or partners. In case you have two identical sites and you would like to rebuild one of them, you could forward the traffic to the other site so that you can avoid losing potential customers, while you shall still be able to access the administration area for the first Internet site and improve it.
