There are two services you'll need for a working web site - a domain name plus a hosting plan for it. When you type the domain in your browser, you see the content that is uploaded in the hosting account, but if that domain name isn't linked to such an account or to an e-mail service, it's parked. In other words, the domain is registered and you are its owner, but it does not have any content of its own. As a substitute, it can open either a pre-made “Under Construction / For Sale” webpage from the registrar company, or it could be directed to some other URL of your choice. The main benefit of parking a domain name is that you can keep it and ensure that no one else will take it. Meanwhile, it's not going to take a slot for a hosted Internet domain within your account. You could also park domains if you have a .com, for example, and you register domains with other extensions such as .net, .org or country-code ones to forward them to the main site in order to protect a brand name.
Parked Domains in Shared Website Hosting
If you have a shared website hosting plans through us, you're going to be able to park each of your domains easily. The function is offered for the domains registered through our company, but not for the ones which are only hosted here and pointed from another company, since a domain address can be parked only through its registrar. Our Domain Manager tool will permit you to choose from a number of templates and you are going to be able to add custom text to any one of them. Forwarding a domain to a new URL is as easy as simply typing the Internet address and saving it. If you would like to host any of your parked domains, it takes just a mouse click to do it and our system will do the rest - changing the name servers, creating a domain folder in your account, creating the required DNS records, etc. For easier control, you are going to be able to filter the domain addresses registered within the account by their status - parked or hosted.
