There are various ways to forward site visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is frequently favored. In contrast to parking a domain name, a URL forwarding can be done only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means in simple terms is that you could still open any content in case you have a direct link to it and you can create e-mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This kind of feature has numerous practical uses - if you decide to switch your domain name, you may redirect the traffic, but the e-mail messages with the old one shall still be active in the event that you are making contact with customers or partners. If you have two similar websites and you want to rebuild one of them, you could redirect the site visitors to the other site so as to avoid losing potential clients, while you shall still be able to access the administrator area for the first Internet site and work on it.
