There are various ways to forward visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is frequently favored. In contrast to parking a domain address, a URL forwarding is possible only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means basically is that you could still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you may create e-mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This kind of feature has lots of practical uses - if you want to switch your domain name, you could redirect the traffic, but the e-mails with the old one will still be active in case you are making contact with clients or partners. In case you have 2 similar websites and you need to rebuild one of them, you can redirect the website visitors to the other website so as to prevent losing potential clients, while you shall still be able to access the admin area for the first website and work on it.
