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 essentially is that you can still open any content in case you have a direct link to it and you may create e-mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This type of feature has numerous practical uses - if you decide to switch your domain name, you could redirect the visitors, but the e-mails with the old one shall still be active in case you are getting in touch with clients or partners. When you have 2 very similar websites and you would like to rebuild one of them, you may forward the site visitors to the other site to prevent losing potential customers, while you'll still be able to access the administration area for the first website and improve it.
