This article will assist you in setting up both domain forwarders and email forwards in your domains cPanel. Forwarders are used for a number of reasons but basically they are user when you require one domains address to be sent to a different domain. Just like if you move your businesses location and you would the post office to forward all of your mail from the old address to the new address

Example:

You would like it when someone types the web address domainone.com.au or domaintwo.com.au to both go to the one website. To do this you would have all of the website data on domaintwo.com.au and have domainone.com.au forward to domaintwo.com.au.
