Discover more about parked domains - what they are and in what occasions it's beneficial to have your domains parked.
If you'd like to register a domain name to ensure that no one else will take it, however, you have not created the site for it yet, you could park it. That is a feature that registrar companies provide if a domain address isn't linked to any web or e-mail hosting service. This way, you are able to protect a brand name, for example, and you will own the domain in question even though it will not open any content. If you wish, you can select some default template that the registrar offers, such as For Sale or Under Construction, alternatively you can forward the domain to a new web address. The second option is very helpful in case you own a few domains, but you want all of them to open the same website. As an example, you can register domain.net and domain.org, then park them and direct them to domain.com. In this example, you will need hosting for the third domain only and the traffic to the other ones is going to be redirected to it.
Parked Domains in Website Hosting
When you have a Linux website hosting packages through us, you will be able to park any of your domains easily. The feature is available for the domain addresses registered with our company, but not for the ones which are only hosted here and pointed from some other company, since a domain address can be parked only through its registrar. Our Domain Manager instrument will allow you to pick from a number of templates and you're going to be able to add your own text to each of them. Redirecting a domain address to an alternative 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 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 required DNS records, etc. For simpler management, you'll be able to filter the domain names registered inside the account by their status - parked or hosted.
