URL redirection permits you to redirect targeted traffic from one site to another. In contrast to forwarding a domain address by parking it when the domain is sort of unusable, a URL forwarding is possible only if the domain name is hosted, and therefore you shall still be able to create entirely functional subdomains and e-mail addresses or even to have content for the domain in question, though it won't be accessible directly. If you have an Internet 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 any difficulty. If a site visitor opens any one of the new domains, however, they shall be redirected to the existing website. This way, you won't miss potential clients while building the localized websites.
