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 forwarding is feasible only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means in simple terms is that you could 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 function has numerous practical uses - if you decide to switch your domain, you may redirect the site visitors, but the emails with the old one will still be active whenever you are making contact with clients or partners. In case you have 2 very similar websites and you want to rebuild one of them, you can redirect the traffic to the other site to avoid losing potential clients, while you shall still be able to access the admin area for the first Internet site and work on it.
