URL redirection allows you to forward targeted traffic from one Internet site to another. In contrast to redirecting a domain name by parking it when the domain is practically unusable, a URL redirection is possible provided that the domain is hosted, and thus you will still be able to create completely functional subdomains and email addresses or even to have content for the domain in question, although it shall not accessible directly. If you have a site, for example, but you need to launch one or many localized Internet sites for different towns or countries, you'll be able to work on them with no difficulty. If a website visitor opens any of the new domain names, however, they shall be forwarded to the existing website. That way, you will not miss potential clients while developing the localized Internet sites.
