There are various ways to forward visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is oftentimes favored. In contrast to parking a domain name, a URL forwarding is possible only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means basically is that you can still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you can set up e-mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This type of feature has several practical uses - if you want to switch your domain, you may forward the visitors, but the e-mail messages with the old one will still be active whenever you are getting in touch with clients or partners. When you have two similar Internet sites and you would like to rebuild one of them, you may forward the visitors to the other website so that you can prevent losing potential customers, while you'll still be able to access the admin area for the first site and work on it.
