URL redirection enables you to forward targeted traffic from one Internet site to another. In contrast to forwarding a domain address by parking it when the domain is practically unusable, a URL forwarding is possible only if the domain name is hosted, meaning that you shall still be able to create fully functional subdomains and email addresses or even to have content for the domain name in question, even though it will not be accessible directly. If you already have a website, for instance, but you would like to launch one or many localized sites for different towns or countries, you shall be able to work on them without any problem. When a visitor opens any one of the new domains, however, they'll be redirected to the existing site. This way, you shall not miss customers while building the localized Internet sites.
