URL redirection enables you to forward traffic from one Internet site to another. In contrast to redirecting a domain name by parking it when the domain is unusable, a URL redirection is possible provided that the domain name is hosted, and therefore you shall still be able to set up fully functional subdomains and e-mail addresses or even to have content for the domain address in question, although it will not be accessible directly. If you have an Internet site, for example, but you'd like to launch one or a number of localized sites for different towns or countries, you will be able to work on them with no difficulty. In case a site visitor opens any one of the new domain names, however, they will be redirected to the existing website. This way, you shall not miss customers while building the localized sites.
