There are many ways to forward website visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is often recommended. In contrast to parking a domain name, a URL redirection is feasible only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means basically is that you may still open any content in case you have a direct link to it and you may create email addresses or subdomains and use them. This sort of feature has several practical uses - if you want to switch your domain name, you can redirect the traffic, but the emails with the old one will still be active whenever you are communicating with clients or partners. When you have 2 identical websites and you would like to rebuild one of them, you may forward the traffic to the other site to prevent losing potential customers, while you will still be able to access the admin area for the first website and work on it.
