There are a lot of ways to forward website visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is often preferred. In contrast to parking a domain, a URL redirection can be done only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means essentially is that you can still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you could create email addresses or subdomains and use them. This sort of feature has numerous practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain, you may redirect the visitors, but the e-mail messages with the old one shall still be active if you are communicating with clients or partners. When you have 2 identical sites and you intend to rebuild one of them, you could forward the site visitors to the other Internet site in order to avoid losing potential clients, while you will still be able to access the administration area for the first website and improve it.
