URL redirection allows you to forward visitors from one Internet site to another. In contrast to forwarding a domain by parking it when the domain is unusable, a URL forwarding is possible only when the domain address is hosted, and therefore you shall still be able to create entirely functional subdomains and email addresses or even to have content for the domain address in question, although it will not be accessible directly. If you currently have an Internet site, for example, but you need to launch one or many localized Internet sites for different towns or countries, you will be able to work on them without a difficulty. If a website visitor opens any of the new domain names, however, they'll be forwarded to the existing Internet site. That way, you will not miss customers while developing the localized sites.
