There are a lot of ways to redirect visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is commonly recommended. In contrast to parking a domain, a URL forwarding is possible only if the domain name 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 may create e mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This type of feature has numerous practical uses - if you decide to switch your domain name, you could redirect the visitors, but the emails with the old one will still be active if you are making contact with customers or partners. If you have 2 very similar Internet sites and you need to rebuild one of them, you could redirect the website visitors to the other website so as to avoid losing potential customers, while you shall still be able to access the admin area for the first site and develop it.
