There are various ways to forward visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is frequently recommended. In contrast to parking a domain name, a URL redirection is feasible only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means basically is that you could still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you can create email addresses or subdomains and use them. This sort of feature has lots of practical uses - if you want to switch your domain address, you can redirect the visitors, but the e-mail messages with the old one will still be active in case you are communicating with customers or partners. When you have two very similar websites and you want to rebuild one of them, you can forward the traffic to the other site in order to prevent losing potential clients, while you shall still be able to access the admin area for the first website and work on it.
