There are a lot of ways to forward traffic from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is often preferred. In contrast to parking a domain, a URL forwarding can be done only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means essentially is that you may still open any content in case you have a direct link to it and you could create email addresses or subdomains and use them. This kind of feature has several practical uses - if you want to switch your domain name, you can redirect the visitors, but the e-mails with the old one will still be active in case you are communicating with customers or partners. When you have two very similar websites and you would like to rebuild one of them, you can redirect the website visitors to the other Internet site to prevent losing potential customers, while you will still be able to access the administrator area for the first Internet site and improve it.
