There are various ways to forward visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is oftentimes favored. In contrast to parking a domain, a URL redirection is possible only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means essentially is that you may still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you can set up email addresses or subdomains and use them. This kind of function has many practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain name, you can forward the visitors, but the e-mails with the old one will still be active if you are communicating with clients or partners. In case you have 2 very similar websites and you intend to rebuild one of them, you could forward the website visitors to the other website to prevent losing potential customers, while you'll still be able to access the administration area for the first website and work on it.
