There are many ways to forward site visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is frequently 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 could still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you can set up email addresses or subdomains and use them. This kind of feature has several practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain name, you can redirect the visitors, but the e-mail messages with the old one shall still be active whenever you are communicating with clients or partners. When you have 2 similar Internet sites and you would like to rebuild one of them, you may redirect the website visitors to the other Internet site so as to avoid losing potential clients, while you shall still be able to access the administrator area for the first website and improve it.
