There are a number of ways to forward traffic from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is frequently preferred. In contrast to parking a domain name, a URL redirection is possible only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means basically is that you can still open any content in case you have a direct link to it and you could create e mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This kind of function has lots of practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain name, you could redirect the site visitors, but the emails with the old one shall still be active in the event that you are communicating with customers or partners. In case you have two similar Internet sites and you intend to rebuild one of them, you can forward the visitors to the other Internet site so that you can avoid losing potential clients, while you'll still be able to access the administrator area for the first site and work on it.
