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 redirection is possible only if the domain 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 may set up email addresses or subdomains and use them. This kind of feature has lots of practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain, you can redirect the visitors, but the e-mail messages with the old one shall still be active whenever you are getting in touch with customers or partners. When you have 2 identical websites and you would like to rebuild one of them, you could forward the website visitors to the other site to avoid losing potential clients, while you shall still be able to access the administrator area for the first Internet site and develop it.
