There are various ways to forward website visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is commonly favored. In contrast to parking a domain name, a URL redirection is possible only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means in simple terms is that you may still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you could create e-mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This type of feature has many practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain address, you may forward the visitors, but the emails with the old one will still be active whenever you are getting in touch with clients or partners. If you have two identical websites and you would like to rebuild one of them, you could forward the website visitors to the other site so as to avoid losing potential clients, while you'll still be able to access the administrator area for the first Internet site and improve it.
