There are a number of ways to forward traffic from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is often recommended. In contrast to parking a domain address, a URL redirection is possible only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means essentially is that you can 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 sort of feature has numerous practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain name, you can redirect the site visitors, but the e-mail messages with the old one will still be active in case you are communicating with clients or partners. If you have 2 very similar websites and you need to rebuild one of them, you may forward the site visitors to the other Internet site so that you can avoid losing potential customers, while you shall still be able to access the administration area for the first website and work on it.
