There are two services you'll need for a functioning site - a domain name plus a website hosting plan for it. Each time you type the domain in your web browser, you see the content that’s uploaded inside the hosting account, but if that domain address is not linked to such an account or to an e-mail service, it is parked. To put it differently, the Internet domain is registered and you're 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” Internet page from the registrar company, or it can be directed to some other URL of your choice. The main advantage of parking a domain address is that you can keep it and be sure that nobody else will take it. In the meantime, it will not block a slot for a hosted domain address within your account. You can also park domain names if you have a .com, for instance, and you register domain addresses 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

When you have a Linux web hosting packages through our company, you are going to be able to park any of your domain names effortlessly. The feature is offered for the domains registered with us, but not for the ones which are only hosted here and directed from another company, because a domain address can be parked only through its registrar. Our Domain Manager tool will allow you to select from a number of different templates and you're going to be able to add custom text to any of them. Redirecting a domain address 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 domain addresses, it takes just a click to do it and our system will do the rest - changing the name servers, creating a domain folder in your account, creating the needed DNS records, etc. For much easier management, you'll be able to filter the domain addresses registered inside the account by their status - parked or hosted.
