A parked Internet domain is one which is taken, but it is not associated with another service - web or email hosting. In other words, this kind of domain address will not open any real content if you type it in an Internet browser, but no one else can take it as you have already registered it and you are its owner. The benefit of acquiring a domain name and parking it afterwards is that you can keep it and not worry that somebody else might register it meanwhile if, for instance, the site for it is not ready yet. You may create a short-term Under Construction webpage for a parked domain name while you're working on the site, or forward it to some other web address - temporarily or permanently. The second option can be used if you have already registered domain.com, for example, 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 domain names can be parked and directed to the .com because you don't need different sites for them.

Parked Domains in Shared Website Hosting

If you have a shared website hosting plans with us, you will be able to park each of your domains effortlessly. The feature is offered for the domain names registered through our company, but not for the ones which are only hosted here and pointed from another company, as a domain name can be parked only through its registrar. Our Domain Manager tool will enable you to select from a number of templates and you are going to be able to include your own text to any of them. Forwarding a domain 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 addresses, 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 necessary DNS records, etc. For easier management, you are going to be able to filter the domains registered in the account by their status - parked or hosted.
