There are various ways to forward traffic from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is frequently preferred. In contrast to parking a domain, a URL forwarding can be done only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means in simple terms is that you can still open any content in case you have a direct link to it and you could create e-mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This type of function has several practical uses - if you decide to switch your domain, you may redirect the visitors, but the e-mail messages with the old one shall still be active if you are communicating with clients or partners. If you have two very similar Internet sites and you would like to rebuild one of them, you can forward the visitors to the other site so as to avoid losing potential customers, while you shall still be able to access the admin area for the first site and improve it.
