There are a lot 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 name, a URL redirection is feasible only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means essentially is that you may still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you could create e-mail addresses or subdomains and use them. Such a function has several practical uses - if you want to switch your domain address, you may redirect the traffic, but the e-mails with the old one will still be active in the event that you are communicating with customers or partners. When you have 2 very similar Internet sites and you intend to rebuild one of them, you can forward the traffic to the other website to prevent losing potential clients, while you shall still be able to access the admin area for the first website and improve it.
