URL redirection allows you to redirect targeted traffic from one site to another. In contrast to forwarding a domain name by parking it when the domain is unusable, a URL forwarding is possible only when the domain is hosted, consequently you will still be able to create completely functional subdomains and e mail addresses or even to have content for the domain name in question, though it will not be accessible directly. If you have a website, for instance, but you would like to launch one or several localized sites for different towns or countries, you shall be able to work on them without any problem. When a visitor opens any of the new domains, however, they'll be forwarded to the existing Internet site. This way, you won't miss potential clients while creating the localized sites.
