A parked domain address is one that's taken, but it is not associated with any other service - web or e-mail hosting. In other words, such a domain will not open any real content if you type it within an Internet browser, but no one can take it as you have already registered it and you are its owner. The advantage of getting a domain name and parking it afterwards is the fact that you’ll be able to keep it and not stress that someone else might register it in the meantime if, for instance, the website for it is not ready yet. You could set a temporary Under Construction website page for a parked domain name while you are working on the site, or direct it to another web address - temporarily or permanently. The latter option can be employed when you have already registered domain.com, for example, and you acquire domain.net and domain.org, so as to protect a brand name or a trademark. In this case, the .net and .org domain names can be parked and directed to the .com because you do not need separate sites for them.

Parked Domains in Web Hosting

When you have a web hosting plans through our company, you're going to be able to park all of your domains with ease. The feature is available for the domains registered through our company, and not for the ones that are only hosted here and pointed 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 number of different templates and you are going to be able to include your own text to any one of them. Forwarding a domain address to a new URL is as easy as just typing the web address and saving it. If you decide to host any of your parked domains, it takes just a click to do it and our system will do the rest - changing the name servers, creating a domain folder in your account, setting up the necessary DNS records, etc. For simpler administration, you will be able to filter the domain addresses registered inside the account by their status - parked or hosted.
