There are many ways to forward traffic from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is oftentimes favored. In contrast to parking a domain name, a URL forwarding can be done only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means in simple terms is that you can still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you may create email addresses or subdomains and use them. This type of function has numerous practical uses - if you want to switch your domain, you can redirect the visitors, but the emails with the old one shall still be active in the event that you are communicating with customers or partners. If you have two identical Internet sites and you would like to rebuild one of them, you could forward the visitors to the other Internet site in order to prevent losing potential customers, while you will still be able to access the administration area for the first website and work on it.
