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