There are a lot of ways to forward website visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is often favored. In contrast to parking a domain name, a URL redirection is possible only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means essentially is that you can still open any content in case you have a direct link to it and you can create e-mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This sort of feature has many practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain address, you may redirect the site visitors, but the emails with the old one will still be active whenever you are making contact with customers or partners. If you have 2 very similar Internet sites and you would like to rebuild one of them, you could redirect the site visitors to the other website in order to avoid losing potential clients, while you will still be able to access the administrator area for the first website and work on it.
