There are various 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 set up e mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This kind of feature has several practical uses - if you decide to switch your domain address, you could forward the site visitors, but the emails with the old one shall still be active whenever you are making contact with clients or partners. In case you have two very similar websites and you want to rebuild one of them, you could forward the visitors to the other website so as to prevent losing potential customers, while you will still be able to access the admin area for the first site and develop it.
