There are many ways to forward visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is commonly favored. In contrast to parking a domain, a URL forwarding is feasible only if the domain 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 e-mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This type of feature has several practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain address, you could forward the visitors, but the e-mails with the old one shall still be active if you are communicating with clients or partners. If you have 2 identical websites and you want to rebuild one of them, you can redirect the website visitors to the other website so that you can avoid losing potential customers, while you'll still be able to access the administration area for the first Internet site and work on it.
