URL redirection allows you to redirect visitors from one Internet site to another. In contrast to forwarding a domain name by parking it when the domain is sort of unusable, a URL forwarding is possible only when the domain name is hosted, consequently you will still be able to create 100% functional subdomains and e-mail addresses or even to have content for the domain in question, although it will not be accessible directly. If you currently have a site, for example, but you need to launch one or a number of localized sites for different towns or countries, you'll be able to work on them with no difficulty. If a site visitor opens any one of the new domains, however, they shall be forwarded to the existing Internet site. This way, you shall not miss customers while developing the localized websites.
