A parked domain address is one which is taken, but it is not associated with some other service - web or e-mail hosting. In other words, this type of domain name will not open any real content when you type it within an Internet browser, but nobody else can take it as you have already registered it and you are its owner. The benefit of obtaining a domain and parking it afterwards is the fact that you will be able to keep it and not stress that someone else might register it in the meantime if, for instance, the site for it is not ready yet. You could set a short-term Under Construction page for a parked Internet domain while you're working on your site, or direct it to some other web address - temporarily or permanently. The latter option can be used when you have already registered domain.com, for instance, and you obtain domain.net and domain.org, so that you can protect a brand name or a trademark. In this case, the .net and .org domain names can be parked and directed to the .com as you do not need different sites for them.

Parked Domains in Shared Hosting

When you have a Linux shared hosting with us, you are going to be able to park all of your domain names effortlessly. The feature is offered for the domain names registered with us, and not for the ones which are only hosted here and directed from another company, as a domain address can be parked only through its registrar. Our Domain Manager instrument will enable you to pick from a variety of templates and you'll be able to add your own text to each of them. Forwarding a domain to a new URL is as easy as only typing the Internet address and saving it. If you decide to host any of your parked domain names, it takes simply a mouse 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 necessary DNS records, etc. For simpler control, you're going to be able to filter the domain names registered within the account by their status - parked or hosted.
