There are various ways to redirect visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is oftentimes preferred. In contrast to parking a domain, a URL forwarding is feasible only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means basically is that you can still open any content in case you have a direct link to it and you can set up email addresses or subdomains and use them. This sort of function has lots of practical uses - if you decide to switch your domain, you could forward the visitors, but the e-mail messages with the old one shall still be active in the event that you are getting in touch with clients or partners. When you have 2 similar sites and you would like to rebuild one of them, you can forward the visitors to the other website so that you can prevent losing potential clients, while you shall still be able to access the administration area for the first site and improve it.
