There are a number of ways to forward website visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is oftentimes favored. In contrast to parking a domain name, a URL forwarding is possible only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means basically is that you could 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 kind of function has many practical uses - if you want to switch your domain address, you could forward the visitors, but the e-mail messages with the old one will still be active if you are getting in touch with clients or partners. In case you have two very similar Internet sites and you want to rebuild one of them, you can redirect the visitors to the other site so that you can avoid losing potential clients, while you will still be able to access the administration area for the first website and improve it.
