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, a URL forwarding is feasible only if the domain name 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 can create email addresses or subdomains and use them. This sort of function has lots of practical uses - if you decide to switch your domain name, you may redirect the visitors, 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 two identical websites and you would like to rebuild one of them, you could redirect the site visitors to the other Internet site in order to avoid losing potential customers, while you shall still be able to access the administration area for the first website and work on it.
