There are a number of ways to forward visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is frequently favored. In contrast to parking a domain address, a URL forwarding can be done only if the domain name 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 may create e mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This type of function has lots of practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain address, you can redirect the site visitors, but the emails with the old one will still be active if you are making contact with clients or partners. When you have two similar websites and you intend to rebuild one of them, you may forward the website visitors to the other website so as to prevent losing potential clients, while you'll still be able to access the administration area for the first site and improve it.
