William just finished deploying the updated hosting tools. It's a small enhancement but it's something that we've been meaning to add support for some time. This allows customers with DNS hosting for a domain to redirect web traffic to another URL without having to setup hosting on the domain. This can be used to easily alias several associated domains all to a single site.

For example, I have example.com hosted and have just registered example.info and want it to point to the same site. If I have an IP based hosting service I could update the DNS records for example.info to point to the same IP addresses. However, if I have a name based hosting service, that isn't possible. Instead, I can setup a redirect on example.info to redirect a browser to http://example.com - an advantage (or disadvantage) is that the location in the browser will also be updated to example.com
