There are many ways to forward site visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is often recommended. In contrast to parking a domain, a URL forwarding is possible only if the domain name 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 create e-mail addresses or subdomains and use them. Such a feature has numerous practical uses - if you want to switch your domain address, you may forward the visitors, but the emails with the old one shall still be active in case you are getting in touch with clients or partners. When you have two similar sites and you need to rebuild one of them, you could forward the website visitors to the other website so that you can avoid losing potential clients, while you shall still be able to access the admin area for the first site and improve it.
