There are two separate services you need for a working site - a domain and a web hosting plan for it. Each time you type the Internet domain in your Internet browser, you see the content that’s uploaded inside the website hosting account, but if that domain name is not linked to such an account or to an email service, it is parked. To put it differently, the domain address is registered and you're its owner, but it doesn't have any content of its own. As a substitute, it can open either a pre-made “Under Construction / For Sale” page from the registrar company, or it can be forwarded to any other URL of your choice. The main advantage of parking a domain name is that you can keep it and make certain that nobody else is going to take it. In the meantime, it's not going to block a slot for a hosted domain name inside your account. You could 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 site in order to protect a brand name.

Parked Domains in Hosting

With each and every hosting plan we offer you’re able to park as many domains as you wish and unlike other companies, we do not have any fees for that. Of course, this can be done only for domains that are registered through our company as parking a domain is possible only through the registrar, but not through the host unless you have the two services with just one company. We've got a feature-rich Domain Manager tool where you can conveniently park and un-park domains, select one of the templates we offer and add custom text to it, or direct a domain name to a URL of your preference. If you host a parked domain name, our system will modify its name servers and set up a folder in the File Manager automatically. Also you can set filters to check out only the parked or only the hosted domain addresses, which will permit you to manage them quick and simple.
