There are a lot of ways to forward website visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is oftentimes favored. In contrast to parking a domain name, a URL forwarding can be done only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means essentially is that you may still open any content in case you have a direct link to it and you may create e mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This type of feature has lots of practical uses - if you decide to switch your domain address, you could redirect the visitors, but the e-mails with the old one shall still be active in the event that you are communicating with clients or partners. In case you have two very similar Internet sites and you want to rebuild one of them, you may forward the site visitors to the other Internet site in order to avoid losing potential customers, while you shall still be able to access the admin area for the first website and improve it.

Creating a new redirection is quite easy - you must select a domain/subdomain and then input the URL it should be redirected to. You can also forward a specific subfolder only.
