There are various ways to forward visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is commonly 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 may still open any content in case you have a direct link to it and you can create email addresses or subdomains and use them. Such a function has many practical uses - if you want to switch your domain name, you could redirect the site visitors, but the e-mails with the old one will still be active in the event that you are getting in touch with customers or partners. When you have two identical websites and you intend to rebuild one of them, you can forward the visitors to the other site in order to prevent losing potential customers, while you shall still be able to access the administrator area for the first site and develop it.
