There are a lot of ways to forward site visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is frequently favored. In contrast to parking a domain address, a URL forwarding can be done only if the domain name 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 set up e mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This type of feature has numerous practical uses - if you decide to switch your domain address, you may forward the visitors, but the e-mail messages with the old one shall still be active whenever you are getting in touch with clients or partners. When you have two identical Internet sites and you need to rebuild one of them, you can redirect the website visitors to the other site to prevent losing potential clients, while you will still be able to access the administrator area for the first website and work on it.
