There are various ways to forward website visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is commonly preferred. In contrast to parking a domain name, a URL forwarding can be done only if the domain 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 can create e mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This type of feature has lots of practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain name, you may forward the site visitors, but the e-mail messages with the old one shall still be active in the event that you are communicating with clients or partners. In case you have two identical websites and you would like to rebuild one of them, you can forward the website visitors to the other website in order to avoid losing potential customers, while you shall still be able to access the administrator area for the first website and work on it.
