There are many ways to forward site visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is commonly recommended. In contrast to parking a domain, a URL redirection is feasible only if the domain 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 can set up email addresses or subdomains and use them. Such a function has numerous practical uses - if you decide to switch your domain name, you may forward the visitors, but the e-mails with the old one shall still be active whenever you are getting in touch with clients or partners. If you have 2 identical Internet sites and you intend to rebuild one of them, you could forward the visitors to the other website so that you can prevent losing potential clients, while you will still be able to access the admin area for the first website and work on it.
