There are various ways to forward site visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is commonly preferred. In contrast to parking a domain address, a URL redirection is feasible only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means in simple terms is that you could still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you may create e-mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This type of function has many practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain name, you could forward the site visitors, but the e-mail messages with the old one shall still be active whenever you are making contact with customers or partners. If you have 2 identical sites and you intend to rebuild one of them, you may forward the traffic to the other Internet site so as to avoid losing potential clients, while you shall still be able to access the administrator area for the first website and work on it.
