There are a number of ways to forward website visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is frequently recommended. In contrast to parking a domain name, a URL forwarding is feasible only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means in simple terms is that you could still open any content in case you have a direct link to it and you can create e mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This sort of function has many practical uses - if you decide to switch your domain, you could redirect the visitors, but the e-mails with the old one will still be active in the event that you are making contact with customers or partners. When you have 2 very similar Internet sites and you intend to rebuild one of them, you could redirect the visitors to the other site so that you can avoid losing potential customers, while you'll still be able to access the administration area for the first Internet site and develop it.
