URL redirection enables you to forward visitors from one site to another. In contrast to redirecting a domain address by parking it when the domain is unusable, a URL forwarding is possible provided that the domain name is hosted, and therefore you'll still be able to set up fully functional subdomains and email addresses or even to have content for the domain address in question, though it shall not accessible directly. If you currently have a site, for instance, but you would like to launch one or a variety of localized websites for different towns or countries, you will be able to work on them without any problem. When a site visitor opens any one of the new domain names, however, they shall be sent to the existing website. In this way, you'll not miss customers while creating the localized websites.
