There are many ways to forward website visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is oftentimes preferred. In contrast to parking a domain address, a URL forwarding is feasible only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means in simple terms is that you may still open any content in case you have a direct link to it and you can set up email addresses or subdomains and use them. This kind of feature has many practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain address, you can forward the traffic, but the e-mail messages with the old one shall still be active whenever you are making contact with customers or partners. In case you have two very similar Internet sites and you need to rebuild one of them, you may redirect the visitors to the other site so that you can prevent losing potential customers, while you will still be able to access the admin area for the first website and work on it.
