There are many ways to forward website visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is oftentimes preferred. In contrast to parking a domain name, a URL forwarding can be done only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means basically is that you may still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you could create email addresses or subdomains and use them. This kind of feature has several practical uses - if you want to switch your domain address, you may forward the site visitors, but the e-mail messages with the old one shall still be active in case you are getting in touch with customers or partners. In case you have 2 identical sites and you intend to rebuild one of them, you may redirect the visitors to the other website in order to prevent losing potential customers, while you'll still be able to access the administrator area for the first website and develop it.
