There are a lot of ways to forward traffic from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is often favored. In contrast to parking a domain, a URL forwarding is feasible only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means essentially is that you can still open any content in case you have a direct link to it and you can create email addresses or subdomains and use them. This kind of feature has several practical uses - if you decide to switch your domain, you could redirect the visitors, but the emails with the old one shall still be active if you are making contact with clients or partners. In case you have 2 similar websites and you need to rebuild one of them, you could forward the site visitors to the other site so as to avoid losing potential customers, while you shall still be able to access the administrator area for the first site and work on it.
