URL redirection allows you to redirect visitors 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, and thus you shall still be able to create completely functional subdomains and email addresses or even to have content for the domain address in question, even though it shall not accessible directly. If you have a website, for instance, but you would like to launch one or several localized websites for different towns or countries, you'll be able to work on them without a problem. If a site visitor opens any one of the new domains, however, they shall be sent to the existing Internet site. In this way, you won't miss customers while building the localized Internet sites.
