There are a number of ways to forward site visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is commonly preferred. In contrast to parking a domain name, a URL redirection can be done only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means basically is that you may still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you may set up email addresses or subdomains and use them. This sort of function has numerous practical uses - if you want to switch your domain address, you may forward the site visitors, but the emails with the old one shall still be active in the event that you are communicating with clients or partners. In case you have 2 similar websites and you intend to rebuild one of them, you could redirect the visitors to the other site so that you can prevent losing potential clients, while you shall still be able to access the administrator area for the first Internet site and work on it.
