There are a lot of ways to redirect 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 can be done only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means essentially is that you can still open any content in case you have a direct link to it and you can set up e mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This kind of feature has many practical uses - if you decide to switch your domain, you may redirect the visitors, but the e-mail messages with the old one shall still be active whenever you are getting in touch with clients or partners. If you have two identical websites and you need to rebuild one of them, you could forward the website visitors to the other website in order to avoid losing potential clients, while you shall still be able to access the admin area for the first website and work on it.

If you are more knowledgeable, you will have a variety of advanced options to select from also - the redirection method (match or direct), the type (301 Permanent or 302 Temporary) and many others.
