There are various ways to forward visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is oftentimes recommended. In contrast to parking a domain, a URL redirection can be done only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means in simple terms is that you could still open any content in case you have a direct link to it and you could create e mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This sort of feature has many practical uses - if you want to switch your domain, you could forward the traffic, but the e-mail messages with the old one will still be active in case you are making contact with clients or partners. If you have 2 similar Internet sites and you would like to rebuild one of them, you may redirect the traffic to the other site to prevent losing potential clients, while you shall still be able to access the administration area for the first Internet site and improve it.
