There are many ways to forward traffic from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is oftentimes preferred. In contrast to parking a domain address, a URL forwarding is feasible only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means in simple terms is that you can still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you can create e mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This type of function has many practical uses - if you decide to switch your domain name, you may redirect the site visitors, but the e-mails with the old one shall still be active whenever you are making contact with clients or partners. When you have 2 similar sites and you would like to rebuild one of them, you could redirect the site visitors to the other site to prevent losing potential customers, while you will still be able to access the administration area for the first website and work on it.
