There are various ways to redirect visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is frequently recommended. In contrast to parking a domain name, a URL redirection is feasible only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means in simple terms is that you can still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you may create e-mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This type of function has lots of practical uses - if you want to switch your domain address, you could redirect the site visitors, but the e-mail messages with the old one will still be active whenever you are getting in touch with customers or partners. If you have 2 identical Internet sites and you would like to rebuild one of them, you may redirect the website visitors to the other site so as to avoid losing potential clients, while you will still be able to access the administrator area for the first site and improve it.

The forwarding will be activated almost instantaneously. If you are more experienced, you'll have a number of advanced options to pick from as well - the redirection method (match or direct), the type (301 Permanent or 302 Temporary) and so forth.
