There are 2 services you need for a functioning site - a domain plus a website hosting plan for it. Each time you type the domain address in your browser, you see the content that’s uploaded within the hosting account, but if that Internet domain is not linked to such an account or to an email service, it's parked. In other words, the domain name is registered and you are its owner, but it does not have any content of its own. Rather, it can open either a pre-made “Under Construction / For Sale” webpage from the registrar company, or it could be forwarded to any other URL of your choice. The main benefit of parking a domain address is that you can keep it and make certain that nobody else is going to take it. Meanwhile, it won't occupy a slot for a hosted domain name inside your account. You may also park domain names if you have a .com, for example, and you register domains with other extensions like .net, .org or country-code ones to direct them to the main web site in order to protect a brand name.

Parked Domains in Web Hosting

If you have a web hosting from us, you are going to be able to park all of your domain names easily. The function is offered for the domain addresses registered through our company, but not for the ones that are only hosted here and directed from some other company, because a domain name can be parked only through its registrar. Our Domain Manager tool will permit you to pick from a number of templates and you're going to be able to add your own text to any of them. Forwarding a domain name to an alternative URL is as easy as simply typing the web address and saving it. If you want to host any of your parked domain names, it takes only a click to do it and our system is going to do the rest - changing the name servers, setting up a domain folder in your account, setting up the required DNS records, etc. For easier control, you're going to be able to filter the domains registered within the account by their status - parked or hosted.
