There are a number of ways to forward visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is often recommended. In contrast to parking a domain address, a URL forwarding can be done only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means essentially is that you may still open any content in case you have a direct link to it and you may set up email addresses or subdomains and use them. This kind of feature has several practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain address, you can forward the site visitors, but the emails with the old one will still be active whenever you are communicating with customers or partners. In case you have two very similar sites and you would like to rebuild one of them, you can forward the visitors to the other website so as to prevent losing potential clients, while you'll still be able to access the admin area for the first Internet site and improve it.
