There are a lot of ways to forward visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is commonly favored. In contrast to parking a domain address, a URL redirection can be done 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 could create e-mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This type of feature has several practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain name, you could redirect the visitors, but the e-mail messages with the old one will still be active in the event that you are communicating with clients or partners. When you have 2 similar Internet sites and you would like to rebuild one of them, you can redirect the site visitors to the other site in order to avoid losing potential customers, while you'll still be able to access the administrator area for the first site and work on it.
