There are many ways to forward traffic from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is oftentimes preferred. In contrast to parking a domain address, a URL redirection is possible only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means basically is that you can still open any content in case you have a direct link to it and you can create e mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This type of feature has many practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain name, you could forward the traffic, but the e-mails with the old one shall still be active in case you are getting in touch with customers or partners. When you have 2 similar Internet sites and you would like to rebuild one of them, you may forward the website visitors to the other site to prevent losing potential customers, while you will still be able to access the administration area for the first website and improve it.
