There are a number of ways to forward traffic from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is oftentimes favored. In contrast to parking a domain name, a URL forwarding is possible only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means essentially 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 numerous practical uses - if you want to switch your domain name, you may redirect the traffic, but the e-mails with the old one shall still be active in case you are communicating with customers or partners. If you have two very similar sites and you need to rebuild one of them, you can forward the site visitors to the other website 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.
