There are a lot of ways to forward visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is commonly favored. In contrast to parking a domain name, a URL redirection can be done 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 may create email addresses or subdomains and use them. This sort of feature has lots of practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain name, you may forward the site visitors, but the e-mails with the old one shall still be active in case you are making contact with clients or partners. In case you have two similar websites and you would like to rebuild one of them, you may forward the website visitors to the other site so as to prevent losing potential clients, while you will still be able to access the administration area for the first site and work on it.
