URL redirection allows you to forward visitors from one site to another. In contrast to redirecting a domain address by parking it when the domain is practically unusable, a URL redirection is possible provided that the domain name is hosted, and thus 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, although it won't be accessible directly. If you already have an Internet site, for instance, but you need to launch one or several localized sites for different towns or countries, you shall be able to work on them without any problem. In case a visitor opens any one of the new domain names, however, they will be forwarded to the existing website. This way, you will not miss potential customers while building the localized websites.

The redirection will be enabled almost instantly. If you are more knowledgeable, you will have a number of advanced options to choose from too - the redirection method (match or direct), the type (301 Permanent or 302 Temporary) etc. All the redirections shall be listed in the same section, so in case you don't need a particular one anymore, you are able to cancel it with a mouse click.
