There are various ways to forward visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is commonly preferred. In contrast to parking a domain name, a URL forwarding is feasible 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 set up e mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This type of function has several practical uses - if you decide to switch your domain, you can forward the visitors, but the e-mail messages with the old one shall still be active in case you are getting in touch with clients or partners. When you have two similar sites and you would like to rebuild one of them, you can redirect the site visitors to the other Internet site in order to avoid losing potential clients, while you will still be able to access the administration area for the first Internet site and work on it.
