Exactly what is a URL Redirector and how does URL redirection function?
URL redirection allows you to forward site visitors from one site to another. In contrast to forwarding a domain by parking it when the domain is unusable, a URL redirection is possible only if the domain address is hosted, consequently you'll 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 website, for example, 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 problem. When a website visitor opens any one of the new domain names, however, they'll be forwarded to the existing Internet site. That way, you shall not miss customers while developing the localized websites.
