There are various ways to forward visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is commonly favored. In contrast to parking a domain address, a URL redirection can be done only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means essentially is that you could still open any content in case you have a direct link to it and you can create e-mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This sort of function has numerous practical uses - if you decide to switch your domain, you can redirect the site visitors, but the e-mail messages with the old one shall still be active in case you are communicating with customers or partners. In case you have two identical sites and you would like to rebuild one of them, you can forward the traffic to the other site so that you can prevent losing potential customers, while you shall still be able to access the administration area for the first site and work on it.
