There are two services you need for a functioning site - a domain name plus a web hosting plan for it. Any time you type the domain in your web browser, you see the content that’s uploaded in the web hosting account, but if that domain isn't linked to such an account or to an email service, it's parked. Put simply, the domain address is registered and you're its owner, but it doesn't have any content of its own. Instead, it can open either a pre-made “Under Construction / For Sale” page from the registrar company, or it could be forwarded to some other URL of your choice. The advantage of parking a domain address is that you can keep it and be sure that no one else is going to take it. Meanwhile, it will not occupy a slot for a hosted domain inside your account. In addition, you can park domain names if you have a .com, for example, and you register domain names with other extensions such as .net, .org or country-code ones to direct them to the main web site as a way to protect a brand name.

Parked Domains in Web Hosting

If you have a Linux web hosting packages through us, you are going to be able to park all of your domains easily. The function is available for the domain names registered with us, but not for the ones which are only hosted here and directed from some other company, since a domain can be parked only through its registrar. Our Domain Manager instrument will permit you to pick from a variety of templates and you'll be able to include your own text to any of them. Forwarding a domain to another URL is as easy as only typing the web address and saving it. If you decide to host any of your parked domain names, it takes only a mouse click to do it and our system will do the rest - changing the name servers, setting up a domain folder in your account, setting up the necessary DNS records, etc. For simpler control, you're going to be able to filter the domains registered in the account by their status - parked or hosted.
