There are a lot of ways to forward traffic from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is frequently recommended. In contrast to parking a domain, a URL redirection is feasible only if the domain name 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 create e-mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This kind of function has lots of 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 will still be active whenever you are making contact with clients or partners. If you have two similar sites and you intend to rebuild one of them, you can forward the site visitors to the other site so that you can avoid losing potential clients, while you shall still be able to access the administration area for the first website and work on it.
