A parked domain name is one that's taken, but it is not linked to some other service - web or email hosting. In other words, such a domain address won't load any actual content when you type it within an Internet browser, but nobody can take it as you've already registered it and you are its owner. The best thing about acquiring a domain and parking it afterwards is the fact that you’re able to keep it and not worry that somebody else might register it in the meantime if, for instance, the site for it is not ready yet. You may create a temporary Under Construction website page for a parked domain address while you are working on your web site, or direct it to another web address - temporarily or permanently. The latter option can be employed if you have already registered domain.com, for instance, and you get domain.net and domain.org, so as to protect a brand name or a trademark. In this case, the .net and .org domain addresses can be parked and directed to the .com as you do not need different sites for them.
Parked Domains in Shared Web Hosting
With each and every shared web hosting plan that we offer you’ll be able to park as many domains as you would like and in contrast to other companies, we don't have any fees for that. Of course, this can be done only for domain addresses that are registered through us because parking a domain is possible only with the registrar, and not through the host unless you have the two services with just one company. We have got a feature-rich Domain Manager tool where you can quickly park and un-park domain addresses, choose one of the templates that we offer and add custom text to it, or direct a domain name to a URL of your choice. If you host a parked domain name, our system will change its name servers and set up a folder in the File Manager automatically. You can also set filters and see only the parked or only the hosted domain names, that will permit you to manage them fast and easy.
