URL redirection permits you to redirect visitors from one Internet site to another. In contrast to forwarding a domain by parking it when the domain is unusable, a URL redirection is possible only if the domain address is hosted, consequently you shall still be able to create completely functional subdomains and e-mail addresses or even to have content for the domain address in question, even though it will not be accessible directly. If you have an Internet site, for example, but you need to launch one or many localized Internet sites for different towns or countries, you shall be able to work on them with no problem. When a website visitor opens any of the new domains, however, they will be redirected to the existing website. This way, you won't miss customers while creating the localized Internet sites.
