A parked Internet domain is one that is taken, yet it is not associated with any other service - web or e-mail hosting. Essentially, this type of domain name won't load any actual content when you type it in a web browser, but no one 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 could possibly register it in the meantime if, for example, the website for it is not ready yet. You can set a temporary Under Construction website page for a parked domain address while you're working on the web site, or forward it to another web address - temporarily or permanently. The latter option can be used if you have already registered domain.com, for example, and you acquire domain.net and domain.org, so that you can protect a brand name or a trademark. In this situation, the .net and .org domain addresses can be parked and directed to the .com because you don't need different websites for them.

Parked Domains in Shared Website Hosting

When you have a Linux shared website hosting packages from our company, you're going to be able to park all of your domain names with ease. The function is offered for the domain addresses registered with us, and not for the ones that are only hosted here and pointed from another company, since a domain name can be parked only through its registrar. Our Domain Manager tool will allow you to pick from a number of different templates and you are going to be able to add custom text to any one of them. Redirecting a domain address to another URL is as easy as only typing the web address and saving it. If you want to host any of your parked domains, it takes only a click to do it and our system is going to do the rest - changing the name servers, setting up a domain folder in your account, creating the necessary DNS records, etc. For simpler administration, you will be able to filter the domain names registered within the account by their status - parked or hosted.
