URL redirection allows you to forward visitors from one Internet site to another. In contrast to redirecting a domain name by parking it when the domain is sort of unusable, a URL redirection is possible only when the domain name is hosted, and thus you shall still have the ability to set up completely functional subdomains and e-mail addresses or even to have content for the domain address in question, even though it shall not accessible directly. If you already have a website, for instance, but you would like to launch one or a variety of localized sites for different towns or countries, you'll be able to work on them with no difficulty. In case a website visitor opens any of the new domain names, however, they'll be sent to the existing website. In this way, you won't miss potential customers while building the localized websites.
