URL redirection enables you to forward site visitors from one site to another. In contrast to forwarding a domain by parking it when the domain is unusable, a URL redirection is possible only when the domain name is hosted, and therefore you shall still be able to create completely functional subdomains and e-mail addresses or even to have content for the domain in question, even though it won't be accessible directly. If you have a website, for instance, but you'd like to launch one or a variety of localized Internet sites for different towns or countries, you will be able to work on them with no difficulty. If a website visitor opens any one of the new domains, however, they shall be forwarded to the existing website. In this way, you shall not miss potential clients while building the localized websites.
