URL redirection permits you to redirect site visitors from one website to another. In contrast to forwarding a domain address by parking it when the domain is practically unusable, a URL redirection is possible provided that the domain is hosted, and therefore you'll still be able to set up fully 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 website, for example, but you need to launch one or many localized sites for different towns or countries, you shall be able to work on them with no problem. If a visitor opens any one of the new domains, however, they'll be sent to the existing site. This way, you won't miss potential clients while building the localized sites.
