There are a lot of ways to forward traffic from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is often preferred. In contrast to parking a domain, a URL forwarding is feasible only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means in simple terms is that you can still open any content in case you have a direct link to it and you may create e mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This type of feature has several practical uses - if you want to switch your domain name, you can redirect the site visitors, but the e-mails with the old one shall still be active in the event that you are getting in touch with clients or partners. When you have 2 identical Internet sites and you intend to rebuild one of them, you can forward the site visitors to the other site in order to avoid losing potential customers, while you'll still be able to access the administrator area for the first website and improve it.
