There are a lot of ways to forward traffic from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is oftentimes recommended. In contrast to parking a domain name, a URL redirection 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 could create e-mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This type of feature has several practical uses - if you want to switch your domain address, you can forward the site visitors, but the emails with the old one shall still be active whenever you are communicating with customers or partners. When you have two similar sites and you want to rebuild one of them, you could redirect the site visitors to the other Internet site so as to avoid losing potential customers, while you shall still be able to access the admin area for the first website and work on it.
