URL redirection allows you to forward targeted traffic from one site to another. In contrast to redirecting a domain by parking it when the domain is practically unusable, a URL forwarding is possible only when the domain name is hosted, and thus you shall still have the ability to create 100% functional subdomains and email addresses or even to have content for the domain name in question, though it won't be accessible directly. If you have a site, for instance, but you want to launch one or many localized websites for different towns or countries, you'll be able to work on them with no difficulty. If a visitor opens any one of the new domain names, however, they'll be redirected to the existing site. That way, you won't miss customers while developing the localized websites.
