URL redirection enables you to redirect targeted traffic from one site to another. In contrast to forwarding a domain name by parking it when the domain is practically unusable, a URL forwarding is possible only when the domain is hosted, and thus you will still have the ability to set up 100% functional subdomains and email addresses or even to have content for the domain in question, even though it shall not accessible directly. If you have a site, for example, but you'd like to launch one or a variety of localized sites for different towns or countries, you will be able to work on them without a problem. When a site visitor opens any of the new domains, however, they will be redirected to the existing Internet site. In this way, you shall not miss customers while creating the localized sites.
