URL redirection permits you to forward targeted traffic from one Internet site to another. In contrast to redirecting a domain by parking it when the domain is sort of unusable, a URL forwarding is possible only when the domain is hosted, and thus you shall still be able to set up completely functional subdomains and email addresses or even to have content for the domain name in question, though it won't be accessible directly. If you currently have a site, for instance, but you'd like to launch one or a variety of localized sites for different towns or countries, you shall be able to work on them with no problem. When a site visitor opens any of the new domains, however, they will be forwarded to the existing website. This way, you shall not miss potential customers while developing the localized Internet sites.
