There are a number of ways to forward site visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is often favored. 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 essentially is that you can still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you could create e-mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This kind of function has numerous practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain address, you can redirect the site visitors, but the e-mail messages with the old one will still be active if you are communicating with customers or partners. When you have 2 very similar sites and you intend to rebuild one of them, you can forward the visitors to the other website to prevent losing potential customers, while you shall still be able to access the admin area for the first Internet site and improve it.
