There are a lot of ways to redirect site visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is frequently recommended. In contrast to parking a domain, a URL forwarding is feasible only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means basically is that you can still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you can set up e mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This kind of feature has numerous practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain, you can redirect the site 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 similar Internet sites and you intend to rebuild one of them, you could forward the visitors to the other Internet site to avoid losing potential clients, while you'll still be able to access the admin area for the first Internet site and develop it.
