There are a lot of ways to redirect website 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 possible only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means essentially is that you can still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you may set up e mail addresses or subdomains and use them. Such a feature has several practical uses - if you decide to switch your domain name, you may forward the traffic, but the e-mails with the old one shall still be active in the event that you are communicating with customers or partners. In case you have 2 identical websites and you need to rebuild one of them, you may forward the website visitors to the other site to avoid losing potential customers, while you will still be able to access the administration area for the first website and develop it.
