There are various ways to forward site visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is often recommended. In contrast to parking a domain name, a URL redirection is possible only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means basically is that you could still open any content in case you have a direct link to it and you could set up e-mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This kind of function has numerous practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain, you can redirect the traffic, but the emails with the old one shall still be active in the event that you are communicating with customers or partners. In case you have two similar Internet sites and you want to rebuild one of them, you can forward the visitors to the other site so as to avoid losing potential clients, while you'll still be able to access the admin area for the first Internet site and develop it.
