There are two separate services that you need for a working website - a domain name and a hosting plan for it. If you type the Internet domain in your web browser, you see the content that is uploaded inside the website hosting account, but if that Internet domain isn't linked to such an account or to an e-mail service, it's parked. In other words, the domain address is registered and you're its owner, but it doesn't have any content of its own. Rather, it can open either a pre-made “Under Construction / For Sale” page from the registrar company, or it could be forwarded to some other URL of your choice. The benefit of parking a domain name is that you can keep it and make sure that no one else will take it. At the same time, it's not going to occupy a slot for a hosted Internet domain within your account. In addition, you can 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 website so as to protect a brand name.

Parked Domains in Shared Website Hosting

If you have a shared website hosting plans with our company, you are going to be able to park each of your domains effortlessly. The feature is offered for the domain names registered through our company, 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 tool will enable you to choose from a number of templates and you'll be able to add custom text to each of them. Redirecting a domain to an alternative URL is as easy as simply typing the Internet address and saving it. If you want to host any of your parked domain addresses, it takes simply a click to do it and our system is going to do the rest - changing the name servers, creating a domain folder in your account, setting up 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.
