There are a lot of ways to forward traffic from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is oftentimes preferred. In contrast to parking a domain, a URL forwarding 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 may create e mail addresses or subdomains and use them. Such a feature has several practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain, you may redirect the site visitors, but the emails with the old one shall still be active whenever you are communicating with customers or partners. In case you have two very similar Internet sites and you would like to rebuild one of them, you could redirect the visitors to the other website in order to prevent losing potential customers, while you shall still be able to access the administrator area for the first Internet site and improve it.
