There are a lot of ways to forward traffic from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is often preferred. In contrast to parking a domain, a URL forwarding is possible only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means basically is that you may still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you can create email addresses or subdomains and use them. This sort of feature has several practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain, you could redirect the traffic, but the e-mails with the old one shall still be active whenever you are making contact with customers or partners. When you have two similar Internet sites and you want to rebuild one of them, you could redirect the traffic to the other site in order to prevent losing potential clients, while you will still be able to access the admin area for the first website and develop it.
