There are many ways to forward website visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is oftentimes recommended. In contrast to parking a domain name, a URL forwarding can be done only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means basically is that you may still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you could create e-mail addresses or subdomains and use them. Such a function has numerous practical uses - if you want to switch your domain name, you can forward the site visitors, but the emails with the old one will still be active whenever you are getting in touch with customers or partners. In case you have 2 identical sites and you intend to rebuild one of them, you could forward the visitors to the other site so that you can avoid losing potential customers, while you will still be able to access the administrator area for the first website and develop it.
