There are a number of ways to forward traffic from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is often favored. In contrast to parking a domain name, a URL redirection is possible only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means essentially is that you may still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you can set up e-mail addresses or subdomains and use them. Such a feature has several practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain address, you could redirect the visitors, but the e-mail messages with the old one shall still be active if you are making contact with customers or partners. When you have two similar websites and you would like to rebuild one of them, you could forward the visitors to the other website so that you can prevent losing potential clients, while you will still be able to access the administrator area for the first website and develop it.

You'll simply have to pick a domain name or a subdomain using a drop-down list, to pick the folder in which the redirection will be set up (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to input the URL where the website visitors 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). Any forwarding that you set up could be deactivated from the same exact section of the Control Panel, in case you do not require it anymore.
