URL redirection enables you to forward site visitors from one Internet site to another. In contrast to forwarding a domain by parking it when the domain is virtually unusable, a URL redirection is possible only if the domain is hosted, and therefore you shall still have the ability to set up fully functional subdomains and e-mail addresses or even to have content for the domain in question, although it won't be accessible directly. If you have a website, for example, but you would like to launch one or several localized sites for different towns or countries, you will be able to work on them without any difficulty. If a website visitor opens any one of the new domains, however, they'll be forwarded to the existing website. This way, you will not miss customers while building the localized websites.
