URL redirection enables you to forward site visitors from one Internet site to another. In contrast to redirecting a domain by parking it when the domain is practically unusable, a URL forwarding is possible provided that the domain name is hosted, meaning that you will still have the ability to create fully functional subdomains and e-mail addresses or even to have content for the domain address in question, though it will not be accessible directly. If you already have a site, for instance, but you would like to launch one or several localized Internet sites for different towns or countries, you will be able to work on them with no problem. In case a website visitor opens any one of the new domains, however, they will be redirected to the existing website. This way, you won't miss customers while building the localized Internet sites.
