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 is feasible only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means essentially is that you may still open any content in case you have a direct link to it and you may set up email addresses or subdomains and use them. Such a feature has numerous practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain, you may redirect the site visitors, but the e-mail messages with the old one will still be active in the event that you are getting in touch with clients or partners. If you have 2 very similar sites and you want to rebuild one of them, you can redirect the site visitors to the other site to avoid losing potential customers, while you'll still be able to access the administrator area for the first site and work on it.
