There are a number of ways to forward website visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is frequently recommended. In contrast to parking a domain name, a URL redirection is feasible only if the domain 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 can create email addresses or subdomains and use them. This kind of feature has several practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain name, you could forward the visitors, but the e-mails with the old one will still be active whenever you are getting in touch with clients or partners. In case you have two identical websites and you would like to rebuild one of them, you may forward the traffic to the other Internet site to prevent losing potential clients, while you will still be able to access the administrator area for the first website and work on it.
