There are a lot of ways to forward site visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is frequently preferred. In contrast to parking a domain address, a URL forwarding can be done only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means basically is that you can still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you could set up e-mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This kind of function has numerous practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain, you could forward the visitors, but the e-mail messages with the old one will still be active whenever you are communicating with customers or partners. If you have two identical Internet sites and you want to rebuild one of them, you could forward the visitors to the other Internet site in order to prevent losing potential customers, while you shall still be able to access the admin area for the first site and work on it.
