There are many ways to forward site visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is commonly recommended. In contrast to parking a domain, a URL forwarding can be done only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means essentially 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. This kind of function has numerous practical uses - if you want to switch your domain, you could redirect the traffic, but the e-mail messages with the old one will still be active if you are communicating with customers or partners. When you have 2 very similar Internet sites and you intend to rebuild one of them, you can forward the traffic to the other website so as to avoid losing potential customers, while you will still be able to access the administration area for the first website and develop it.
