URL redirection allows you to forward traffic from one Internet site to another. In contrast to redirecting a domain name by parking it when the domain is unusable, a URL redirection is possible only if the domain name is hosted, consequently you shall still have the ability to create 100% functional subdomains and e-mail addresses or even to have content for the domain in question, though it won't be accessible directly. If you have a website, for instance, but you would like to launch one or a variety of localized sites for different towns or countries, you shall be able to work on them without any difficulty. If a website visitor opens any of the new domains, however, they will be sent to the existing site. In this way, you will not miss customers while creating the localized websites.
