There are 2 services that you need for a working website - a domain and a website hosting plan for it. Each time you type the domain address in your web browser, you see the content that is uploaded within the web hosting account, but if that Internet domain is not linked to such an account or to an e-mail service, it is parked. To put it differently, the domain address is registered and you are its owner, but it doesn't have any content of its own. As a substitute, it can open either a pre-made “Under Construction / For Sale” page from the registrar company, or it can be forwarded to any other URL of your choice. The benefit of parking a domain name is that you can keep it and ensure that nobody else is going to take it. Meanwhile, it won't take a slot for a hosted Internet domain inside your account. You may also 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 forward them to the main web site as a way to protect a brand name.
Parked Domains in Cloud Web Hosting
With each and every cloud web hosting plan which we offer you’re able to park as many domain names as you wish and unlike other companies, we do not have any service fees for that. However, this can be done exclusively for domain names which are registered through our company because parking a domain is possible only with the registrar, but not through the host unless you have both services with the exact same company. We've got a feature-rich Domain Manager tool where you can effortlessly park and un-park domain addresses, pick one of the templates we provide and add custom text to it, or direct a domain address 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 allow you to handle them fast and easy.
