There are various ways to forward traffic from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is commonly recommended. In contrast to parking a domain address, a URL forwarding is feasible only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means in simple terms is that you could still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you could set up email addresses or subdomains and use them. This kind of feature has many practical uses - if you decide to switch your domain address, you could redirect the site visitors, but the e-mail messages with the old one will still be active in the event that you are communicating with clients or partners. In case you have two very similar sites and you want to rebuild one of them, you can forward the website visitors to the other site so that you can avoid losing potential customers, while you'll still be able to access the administrator area for the first website and develop it.
