There are a number of ways to forward website visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is often favored. In contrast to parking a domain, a URL forwarding is possible only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means basically is that you can still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you could set up e mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This kind of function has numerous practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain name, you can forward the visitors, but the e-mail messages with the old one shall still be active if you are communicating with customers or partners. In case you have two identical Internet sites and you intend to rebuild one of them, you can forward the site visitors to the other website in order to prevent losing potential customers, while you will still be able to access the administration area for the first site and work on it.
