There are various ways to forward visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is oftentimes preferred. In contrast to parking a domain, a URL redirection is possible only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means in simple terms is that you could still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you may create email addresses or subdomains and use them. This kind of feature has several practical uses - if you decide to switch your domain address, you could redirect the traffic, but the emails with the old one shall still be active in case you are making contact with clients or partners. If you have two similar websites and you need to rebuild one of them, you could redirect the visitors to the other website so that you can avoid losing potential customers, while you will still be able to access the administration area for the first website and develop it.
