There are a lot of ways to forward traffic from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is frequently recommended. In contrast to parking a domain address, 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 in case you have a direct link to it and you can set up e-mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This kind of feature has several practical uses - if you decide to switch your domain name, you may redirect the site visitors, but the e-mail messages with the old one will still be active whenever you are communicating with customers or partners. If you have two similar websites and you intend to rebuild one of them, you could redirect the site visitors to the other Internet site so that you can avoid losing potential customers, while you shall still be able to access the administration area for the first site and work on it.
