Discover what parked domains are, why they're so valuable and how to park a domain.
If you'd like to register a domain name to make sure that no one else will take it, but you have not built the site for it yet, you can park it. It's a feature that registrar companies offer if a domain is not connected to any web or e mail hosting service. That way, you are able to protect a brand name, for example, and you'll own the domain name in question even though it won't load any content. If you wish, you can select some default template that the registrar provides, like For Sale or Under Construction, alternatively you can direct the domain to an alternative web address. Your second option is very useful if you own a few domain names, but you want all of them to open the same website. As an illustration, you can register domain.net and domain.org, then park them and forward them to domain.com. In this example, you are going to need hosting for the third domain only and the traffic to the other ones is going to be redirected to it.
Parked Domains in Web Hosting
When you have a web hosting plans with us, you will be able to park any of your domains effortlessly. The feature is available for the domains registered with us, but not for the ones which 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 permit you to pick from a variety of templates and you're going to be able to include your own text to any of them. Forwarding a domain to another URL is as easy as just typing the web address and saving it. If you would like to host any of your parked domain addresses, it takes only a mouse 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, setting up the necessary DNS records, etc. For much easier administration, you are going to be able to filter the domain names registered within the account by their status - parked or hosted.
