There are a number of ways to forward site visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is often preferred. In contrast to parking a domain address, a URL forwarding is feasible only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means essentially is that you could still open any content in case you have a direct link to it and you could set up email addresses or subdomains and use them. This kind of feature has lots of practical uses - if you decide to switch your domain name, you could redirect the traffic, but the e-mails with the old one will still be active in case you are getting in touch with customers or partners. If you have 2 identical websites and you intend to rebuild one of them, you may redirect the visitors to the other website so that you can avoid losing potential clients, while you will still be able to access the admin area for the first site and improve it.
