There are many ways to forward visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is commonly preferred. In contrast to parking a domain, a URL forwarding is feasible 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 could set up email addresses or subdomains and use them. Such a feature has lots of practical uses - if you decide to switch your domain name, you may forward the traffic, but the e-mails with the old one will still be active in case you are communicating with clients or partners. If you have two identical Internet sites and you would like to rebuild one of them, you can redirect the traffic to the other site to prevent losing potential customers, while you will still be able to access the administration area for the first Internet site and develop it.

Creating a new redirection is incredibly simple - you need to choose a domain/subdomain and then enter the URL it needs to be forwarded to. You can also redirect a certain subfolder only.

The tool has sophisticated options for more tech-savvy users also, such as the possibility to choose the redirection type - 301 (permanent redirection) or 302 (temporary redirection), the redirection method - direct or match, and so forth.
