There are various ways to forward visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is frequently favored. 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 essentially is that you may 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 kind of function has several practical uses - if you decide to switch your domain name, you can redirect the site visitors, but the e-mail messages with the old one shall still be active in case you are making contact with customers or partners. When you have 2 identical websites and you would like to rebuild one of them, you may forward the traffic to the other Internet site in order to prevent losing potential clients, while you'll still be able to access the admin area for the first Internet site and work on it.
