There are a lot of ways to forward traffic from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is often favored. In contrast to parking a domain address, a URL redirection is feasible only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means in simple terms 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. Such a function has numerous practical uses - if you want to switch your domain, you may redirect the site visitors, but the e-mails with the old one shall still be active whenever you are communicating with clients or partners. If you have 2 very similar websites and you need to rebuild one of them, you can forward the visitors to the other Internet site in order to prevent losing potential clients, while you shall still be able to access the administration area for the first Internet site and work on it.
