A parked domain is one which is taken, yet it is not linked to another service - web or e mail hosting. Basically, such a domain address won't load any actual content if you type it inside a browser, but no one else can take it as you have already registered it and you are its owner. The main advantage of obtaining a domain name and parking it afterwards is that you will be able to keep it and not worry that somebody else might register it in the meantime if, for instance, the site for it is not ready yet. You can create a short-term Under Construction webpage for a parked domain while you're working on the site, or forward it to some other web address - temporarily or permanently. The second option can be employed when you have already registered domain.com, for example, and you get domain.net and domain.org, in order to protect a brand name or a trademark. In such a case, the .net and .org domain names can be parked and directed to the .com since you don't need separate sites for them.

Parked Domains in Cloud Website Hosting

If you have a cloud website hosting plans with our company, you will be able to park all of your domains effortlessly. The function is offered for the domain addresses registered with us, but not for the ones which are only hosted here and directed from some other company, since a domain can be parked only through its registrar. Our Domain Manager tool will allow you to choose from a number of different templates and you'll be able to include your own text to each of them. Forwarding a domain address to a new URL is as easy as simply typing the web address and saving it. If you would like to host any of your parked domains, it takes only 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 required DNS records, etc. For simpler control, you're going to be able to filter the domains registered in the account by their status - parked or hosted.
