There are many ways to forward visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is commonly recommended. In contrast to parking a domain name, a URL redirection can be done only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means in simple terms 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 sort of function has several practical uses - if you decide to switch your domain name, you can redirect the site visitors, but the e-mails with the old one will still be active whenever you are communicating with clients or partners. In case you have 2 very similar sites and you would like to rebuild one of them, you may forward the visitors to the other site so as to prevent losing potential customers, while you'll still be able to access the admin area for the first Internet site and improve it.
