There are many ways to forward website visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is frequently favored. In contrast to parking a domain, a URL forwarding is possible only if the domain name 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 set up e mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This sort of function has numerous practical uses - if you want to switch your domain address, you could forward the visitors, but the emails with the old one shall still be active whenever you are communicating with customers or partners. If you have two very similar websites and you need to rebuild one of them, you could forward the visitors to the other site in order to prevent losing potential customers, while you shall still be able to access the admin area for the first site and work on it.
