There are a number of ways to redirect site visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is frequently favored. In contrast to parking a domain address, a URL forwarding is feasible only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means basically is that you may still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you may create email addresses or subdomains and use them. This type of feature has many practical uses - if you decide to switch your domain, you may forward the site visitors, but the e-mails with the old one shall still be active if you are communicating with clients or partners. If you have two identical websites and you want to rebuild one of them, you could redirect the visitors to the other website in order to prevent losing potential customers, while you shall still be able to access the admin area for the first website and develop it.
