There are various ways to forward visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is commonly favored. In contrast to parking a domain name, a URL redirection is feasible only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means basically is that you could still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you can create e-mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This type of feature has many practical uses - if you want to switch your domain address, you may redirect the visitors, but the emails with the old one will still be active if you are communicating with customers or partners. In case you have two very similar Internet sites and you would like to rebuild one of them, you may forward the website visitors to the other site to prevent losing potential customers, while you'll still be able to access the admin area for the first website and improve it.
