There are many ways to forward site visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is commonly recommended. In contrast to parking a domain address, a URL forwarding is feasible only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means in simple terms is that you may still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you could create email addresses or subdomains and use them. Such a feature has lots of practical uses - if you decide to switch your domain, you may redirect the visitors, but the emails with the old one shall still be active in case you are getting in touch with customers or partners. In case you have 2 very similar sites and you need to rebuild one of them, you can forward the website visitors to the other site in order to avoid losing potential clients, while you'll still be able to access the admin area for the first Internet site and improve it.
