URL redirection enables you to redirect site visitors from one site to another. In contrast to forwarding a domain name by parking it when the domain is unusable, a URL forwarding is possible only when the domain address is hosted, and therefore you'll still have the ability to set up 100% functional subdomains and e mail addresses or even to have content for the domain name in question, even though it won't be accessible directly. If you have an Internet site, for instance, but you want to launch one or many localized websites for different towns or countries, you will be able to work on them without a difficulty. If a visitor opens any of the new domains, however, they will be redirected to the existing Internet site. That way, you'll not miss potential customers while building the localized sites.
