There are a lot 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, a URL redirection can be done only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means in simple terms is that you can still open any content in case you have a direct link to it and you may create e-mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This sort of feature has numerous practical uses - if you want to switch your domain name, you may forward the visitors, but the e-mails with the old one shall still be active in the event that you are communicating with clients or partners. In case you have two very similar sites and you want to rebuild one of them, you can forward the site visitors to the other website so that you can prevent losing potential customers, while you'll still be able to access the administration area for the first Internet site and develop it.
