There are 2 services you'll need for a working site - a domain name plus a website hosting plan for it. When you type the Internet domain in your web browser, you see the content that’s uploaded in the website hosting account, but if that domain name is not linked to such an account or to an email service, it is parked. In other words, the domain address is registered and you're its owner, but it lacks 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 directed to some other URL of your choice. The benefit 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's not going to occupy a slot for a hosted domain within your account. You may 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 website so as to protect a brand name.

Parked Domains in Shared Hosting

When you have a Linux shared packages from our company, you are going to be able to park any of your domains easily. The feature is available for the domain names registered with us, and 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 allow you to pick from a variety of templates and you're going to be able to include custom text to any of them. Redirecting a domain address to a different URL is as easy as just typing the web address and saving it. If you decide to host any of your parked domain addresses, it takes just 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 required DNS records, etc. For simpler management, you are going to be able to filter the domains registered in the account by their status - parked or hosted.
