There are a number 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 name, a URL forwarding is feasible only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means essentially is that you may still open any content in case you have a direct link to it and you could set up e mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This sort of function has lots of practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain address, you could forward the site visitors, but the emails with the old one will still be active in case you are communicating with clients or partners. When you have two identical Internet sites and you need to rebuild one of them, you could redirect the site visitors to the other website so that you can avoid losing potential customers, while you will still be able to access the administrator area for the first site and develop it.
