There are many ways to forward traffic from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is commonly favored. In contrast to parking a domain, a URL forwarding is feasible only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means basically is that you can still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you may set up e mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This type of function has lots of practical uses - if you decide to switch your domain address, you may forward the site visitors, but the e-mails with the old one shall still be active in case you are getting in touch with customers or partners. When you have two identical websites and you need to rebuild one of them, you could redirect the visitors to the other site so as to prevent losing potential customers, while you shall still be able to access the administrator area for the first website and develop it.
