There are a number of ways to forward visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is oftentimes recommended. In contrast to parking a domain address, a URL redirection is possible only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means essentially is that you can still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you can create email addresses or subdomains and use them. This sort of feature has several practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain address, you can redirect the site visitors, but the e-mails with the old one will still be active in case you are communicating with clients or partners. When you have two similar sites and you would like to rebuild one of them, you could redirect the visitors to the other website so as to prevent losing potential customers, while you shall still be able to access the administration area for the first website and develop it.
