There are many ways to forward traffic from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is commonly preferred. In contrast to parking a domain address, a URL redirection can be done only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means basically is that you can still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you could set up e-mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This type of feature has lots of practical uses - if you decide to switch your domain address, you may redirect the site visitors, but the e-mail messages with the old one will still be active whenever you are making contact with customers or partners. When you have two very similar sites and you need to rebuild one of them, you could redirect the traffic to the other Internet site so as to avoid losing potential clients, while you will still be able to access the administrator area for the first website and improve it.
