There are many ways to forward traffic from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is oftentimes preferred. In contrast to parking a domain name, a URL redirection is feasible only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means essentially is that you could still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you could create email addresses or subdomains and use them. This kind of feature has many practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain, you may forward the site visitors, but the emails with the old one shall still be active whenever you are getting in touch with customers or partners. In case you have 2 very similar Internet sites and you want to rebuild one of them, you can redirect the website visitors to the other site so that you can avoid losing potential customers, while you shall still be able to access the admin area for the first website and work on it.

For a standard redirection, you will simply need to choose a domain/subdomain from a drop-down menu, to type the new URL, and then to save the modification.
