There are a number of ways to forward website visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is oftentimes recommended. 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 can still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you may set up e-mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This type of feature has several practical uses - if you decide to switch your domain address, you could redirect the traffic, but the e-mails with the old one shall still be active in the event that you are getting in touch with clients or partners. If you have 2 identical sites and you would like to rebuild one of them, you can forward the visitors to the other website so that you can prevent losing potential customers, while you shall still be able to access the admin area for the first site and work on it.
