There are a lot of ways to forward visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is oftentimes recommended. In contrast to parking a domain, a URL forwarding can be done only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means in simple terms is that you could 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 sort of function has many practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain address, you can forward the site visitors, but the e-mail messages with the old one will still be active whenever you are communicating with clients or partners. When you have 2 similar sites and you would like to rebuild one of them, you may redirect the visitors to the other website to prevent losing potential clients, while you will still be able to access the administrator area for the first Internet site and work on it.

You will only need to select a domain or a subdomain through a drop-down list, to pick the folder where the redirection will be set up (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to input the URL to which the traffic should be forwarded to. For more knowledgeable users, there are also options to pick the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match).
