A parked domain is one which is taken, but it is not connected to any other service - web or email hosting. In other words, this type of domain address won't load any real content in case you type it within an Internet browser, but no one can take it as you have already registered it and you are its owner. The best thing about obtaining a domain and parking it afterwards is the fact that you will be able to keep it and not stress that someone else could possibly register it meanwhile if, for instance, the site for it is not ready yet. You may set a temporary Under Construction webpage for a parked domain name while you are working on your web site, or direct it to some other web address - temporarily or permanently. The second option can be used when you have already registered domain.com, for instance, and you get domain.net and domain.org, in order to protect a brand name or a trademark. In such a case, the .net and .org domains can be parked and directed to the .com because you don't need different sites for them.

Parked Domains in Shared Hosting

When you have a Linux shared hosting through our company, you will be able to park each of your domain names easily. The feature is available for the domain addresses registered with us, and not for the ones which are only hosted here and directed from another company, since a domain name can be parked only through its registrar. Our Domain Manager tool will enable you to pick from a variety of templates and you will be able to include your own text to any one of them. Redirecting a domain address to a new URL is as easy as only typing the Internet address and saving it. If you decide to host any of your parked domain names, it takes simply a mouse click to do it and our system is going to do the rest - changing the name servers, creating a domain folder in your account, creating the required DNS records, etc. For easier management, you will be able to filter the domains registered inside the account by their status - parked or hosted.
