There are various ways to forward traffic from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is commonly recommended. In contrast to parking a domain address, 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 in case you have a direct link to it and you may set up e-mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This type of function has numerous practical uses - if you decide to switch your domain address, you can redirect the site visitors, but the e-mail messages with the old one shall still be active whenever you are getting in touch with clients or partners. When you have two very similar Internet sites and you intend to rebuild one of them, you could forward the site visitors to the other Internet site in order to prevent losing potential clients, while you'll still be able to access the administration area for the first Internet site and work on it.
