URL redirection enables you to forward targeted traffic from one site to another. In contrast to redirecting a domain by parking it when the domain is unusable, a URL redirection is possible only when the domain is hosted, meaning that you'll still be able to set up fully functional subdomains and e-mail addresses or even to have content for the domain name in question, even though it will not be accessible directly. If you currently have a site, for example, but you'd like to launch one or a number of localized sites for different towns or countries, you'll be able to work on them without any problem. In case a website visitor opens any one of the new domains, however, they will be redirected to the existing website. That way, you will not miss customers while developing the localized Internet sites.
