A parked Internet domain is one that's taken, yet it is not associated with any other service - web or e mail hosting. Essentially, such a domain will not load any real content in case you type it within a browser, but nobody can take it as you have already registered it and you are its owner. The main advantage of obtaining a domain and parking it afterwards is the fact that you will be able to keep it and not worry that somebody else could possibly register it in the meantime if, for instance, the site for it is not ready yet. You can set a short-term Under Construction website page for a parked domain name while you are working on the website, or direct it to another web address - temporarily or permanently. The latter option can be used when 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 situation, the .net and .org domain names can be parked and forwarded to the .com as you don't need individual sites for them.
Parked Domains in Shared Hosting
With each and every shared hosting plan that we offer you’ll be able to park as many domain addresses as you want and in contrast to other companies, we do not have any fees for that. Naturally, you can do this just for domain names that are registered through us since parking a domain is possible only through the registrar, but not through the host unless you have the two services with the exact same company. We have a feature-rich Domain Manager tool where you can effortlessly park and un-park domain names, pick one of the templates we provide and add custom text to it, or forward a domain name to a URL of your preference. If you host a parked domain address, our system will change its name servers and create a folder in the File Manager automatically. You could also set filters to check out only the parked or only the hosted domain addresses, which will allow you to control them fast and easy.
