URL redirection permits you to forward visitors from one site to another. In contrast to forwarding a domain by parking it when the domain is practically unusable, a URL forwarding is possible only if the domain is hosted, meaning that you shall still be able to set up entirely functional subdomains and e-mail addresses or even to have content for the domain name in question, although it will not be accessible directly. If you have an Internet site, for instance, but you need to launch one or many localized websites for different towns or countries, you will be able to work on them without a difficulty. When a website visitor opens any one of the new domain names, however, they will be redirected to the existing site. That way, you won't miss potential customers while developing the localized Internet sites.
