URL redirection enables you to forward targeted traffic from one site to another. In contrast to forwarding a domain by parking it when the domain is virtually unusable, a URL forwarding is possible only when the domain address is hosted, consequently you shall still have the ability to create completely functional subdomains and e-mail addresses or even to have content for the domain address in question, even though it won't be accessible directly. If you already have a site, for instance, but you want to launch one or several localized websites for different towns or countries, you shall be able to work on them without a problem. When a website visitor opens any of the new domains, however, they'll be forwarded to the existing website. In this way, you will not miss potential clients while creating the localized sites.
