There are many ways to forward traffic from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is often preferred. In contrast to parking a domain name, a URL forwarding is feasible only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means essentially is that you could 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 function has several practical uses - if you decide to switch your domain name, you could redirect the visitors, but the e-mail messages with the old one shall still be active in the event that you are making contact with clients or partners. In case you have 2 similar sites and you need to rebuild one of them, you could forward the site visitors to the other Internet site to prevent losing potential clients, while you shall still be able to access the administrator area for the first site and work on it.
