URL redirection permits you to redirect traffic from one website to another. In contrast to forwarding a domain by parking it when the domain is practically unusable, a URL forwarding is possible provided that the domain address is hosted, and thus you will still be able to create fully functional subdomains and e-mail addresses or even to have content for the domain address in question, even though it will not be accessible directly. If you have an Internet site, for instance, but you would like to launch one or several localized Internet sites for different towns or countries, you shall be able to work on them without a difficulty. If a visitor opens any one of the new domain names, however, they'll be redirected to the existing Internet site. This way, you shall not miss customers while developing the localized websites.
