URL redirection enables you to forward visitors from one website to another. In contrast to redirecting a domain by parking it when the domain is sort of unusable, a URL redirection is possible only if the domain is hosted, meaning that you'll still have the ability to set up entirely functional subdomains and e mail addresses or even to have content for the domain address in question, even though it shall not accessible directly. If you have a website, for example, but you would like to launch one or a number of localized websites for different towns or countries, you shall be able to work on them without any difficulty. In case a site visitor opens any one of the new domain names, however, they shall be redirected to the existing site. That way, you will not miss potential clients while developing the localized sites.
