There are various ways to redirect traffic from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is commonly preferred. In contrast to parking a domain name, a URL redirection is possible only if the domain name 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 may create e-mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This type of feature has numerous practical uses - if you want to switch your domain name, you can forward the traffic, but the e-mails with the old one will still be active if you are making contact with clients or partners. When you have 2 similar Internet sites and you would like to rebuild one of them, you may forward the visitors to the other website in order to prevent losing potential customers, while you'll still be able to access the administrator area for the first website and develop it.
