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, a URL forwarding is possible only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means basically is that you may still open any content in case you have a direct link to it and you may create email addresses or subdomains and use them. This type of feature has several practical uses - if you want to switch your domain name, you could forward the site visitors, but the e-mails with the old one will still be active if you are getting in touch with clients or partners. In case you have 2 very similar sites and you need to rebuild one of them, you may forward the visitors to the other website so that you can prevent losing potential clients, while you will still be able to access the admin area for the first Internet site and develop it.
