There are various ways to forward website visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is often preferred. In contrast to parking a domain address, a URL redirection is feasible only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means in simple terms is that you can still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you could create e mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This sort of function has numerous practical uses - if you want to switch your domain, you could forward the site visitors, but the e-mails with the old one will still be active whenever you are communicating with clients or partners. When you have two very similar websites and you want to rebuild one of them, you can forward the visitors to the other Internet site so as to avoid losing potential customers, while you will still be able to access the administrator area for the first Internet site and develop it.
