URL redirection enables you to redirect targeted traffic from one site to another. In contrast to redirecting a domain name by parking it when the domain is virtually unusable, a URL forwarding is possible only if the domain name is hosted, and thus you will still have the ability to set up fully functional subdomains and email 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 example, but you need to launch one or a number of localized Internet sites for different towns or countries, you will be able to work on them with no problem. When a site visitor opens any one of the new domain names, however, they shall be redirected to the existing site. That way, you'll not miss potential customers while creating the localized Internet sites.
