URL redirection enables you to forward traffic from one website 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 name is hosted, meaning that you will still be able to create 100% functional subdomains and e-mail addresses or even to have content for the domain address in question, although it shall not accessible directly. If you have an Internet site, for instance, but you want to launch one or a variety of localized websites for different towns or countries, you will be able to work on them without any difficulty. If a site visitor opens any of the new domain names, however, they shall be forwarded to the existing Internet site. This way, you will not miss potential customers while building the localized sites.

The forwarding will be active almost immediately. If you're more knowledgeable, you will have a range of advanced options to choose from also - the redirection method (match or direct), the type (301 Permanent or 302 Temporary) and many others.
