There are a lot of ways to forward traffic from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is frequently preferred. In contrast to parking a domain, a URL redirection is feasible only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means in simple terms is that you can still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you can set up e-mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This kind of feature has numerous practical uses - if you decide to switch your domain, you could redirect the visitors, but the e-mails with the old one shall still be active whenever you are communicating with customers or partners. In case you have two similar sites and you would like to rebuild one of them, you could forward the site visitors to the other website so as to avoid losing potential clients, while you'll still be able to access the administration area for the first Internet site and work on it.
