URL redirection enables you to forward traffic from one website 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 address is hosted, and therefore you'll still have the ability to set up fully functional subdomains and e-mail addresses or even to have content for the domain in question, though it shall not accessible directly. If you currently have a website, for instance, but you would like to launch one or a variety of localized Internet sites for different towns or countries, you'll be able to work on them without a difficulty. When a website visitor opens any of the new domain names, however, they'll be sent to the existing site. In this way, you won't miss potential customers while building the localized websites.
