There are 2 services that you need for a working site - a domain plus a website hosting plan for it. When you type the domain name in your browser, you see the content that’s uploaded in the website hosting account, but if that domain name 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 are its owner, but it does not have any content of its own. As a substitute, it can open either a pre-made “Under Construction / For Sale” webpage from the registrar company, or it could be directed to some other URL of your choice. The main advantage of parking a domain address is that you can keep it and make certain that nobody else is going to take it. In the meantime, it's not going to occupy a slot for a hosted domain within your account. In addition, you can park domains if you have a .com, for instance, and you register domain addresses with other extensions such as .net, .org or country-code ones to direct them to the main web site so as to protect a brand name.

Parked Domains in Cloud Web Hosting

If you have a cloud web hosting through us, you're going to be able to park all of your domains with ease. The feature is available for the domains registered with us, but not for the ones that are only hosted here and pointed from some other company, since a domain name can be parked only through its registrar. Our Domain Manager tool will enable you to select from a number of different templates and you'll be able to add your own text to any one 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 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, creating the required DNS records, etc. For easier control, you're going to be able to filter the domain addresses registered within the account by their status - parked or hosted.
