There are many ways to forward website visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is frequently favored. In contrast to parking a domain address, a URL redirection is possible only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means essentially is that you could still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you can create e-mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This sort of feature has numerous practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain, you may forward the traffic, but the e-mail messages with the old one will still be active whenever you are getting in touch with clients or partners. When you have two similar Internet sites and you need to rebuild one of them, you could forward the website visitors to the other site to prevent losing potential customers, while you'll still be able to access the administrator area for the first site and develop it.
