URL redirection permits you to redirect traffic from one site to another. In contrast to forwarding a domain name by parking it when the domain is virtually unusable, a URL redirection is possible only if the domain name is hosted, meaning that you'll still have the ability to create 100% functional subdomains and e mail addresses or even to have content for the domain address in question, though it shall not accessible directly. If you have a website, for example, but you want to launch one or several localized sites for different towns or countries, you will be able to work on them with no difficulty. If a site visitor opens any one of the new domain names, however, they'll be forwarded to the existing site. This way, you shall not miss potential clients while building the localized sites.
