URL redirection permits you to forward visitors from one site to another. In contrast to forwarding a domain name by parking it when the domain is sort of unusable, a URL forwarding is possible only when the domain address is hosted, meaning that you'll still be able to create 100% functional subdomains and e mail addresses or even to have content for the domain name in question, though it won't be accessible directly. If you currently have a website, for instance, but you'd like to launch one or a variety of localized websites for different towns or countries, you'll be able to work on them without a difficulty. When a visitor opens any one of the new domain names, however, they'll be forwarded to the existing site. In this way, you shall not miss potential clients while building the localized websites.
