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 address, a URL redirection is feasible only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means in simple terms is that you can 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 sort of feature has lots of practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain address, 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. When you have 2 very similar websites and you want to rebuild one of them, you may redirect the traffic to the other site so that you can avoid losing potential customers, while you'll still be able to access the administration area for the first website and improve it.
