There are two services you need for a functioning web site - a domain name and a web hosting plan for it. Whenever you type the domain name in your browser, you see the content that is uploaded inside the hosting account, but if that domain address isn't linked to such an account or to an email service, it's parked. Put simply, the domain is registered and you're its owner, but it does not have any content of its own. Instead, it can open either a pre-made “Under Construction / For Sale” webpage from the registrar company, or it may be directed to some other URL of your choice. The advantage of parking a domain address is that you can keep it and be sure that nobody else will take it. In the meantime, it will not occupy a slot for a hosted domain name within your account. In addition, you can park domains if you have a .com, for instance, and you register domain names with other extensions such as .net, .org or country-code ones to forward them to the main website as a way to protect a brand name.

Parked Domains in Cloud Web Hosting

If you have a cloud web hosting plans through our company, you're going to be able to park all of your domains easily. The function is offered for the domain addresses registered through our company, and not for the ones which 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 allow you to choose from a number of different templates and you're going to be able to include custom text to any one of them. Forwarding a domain to an alternative URL is as easy as simply typing the Internet address and saving it. If you would like to host any of your parked domain names, it takes only a 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 easier administration, you'll be able to filter the domains registered within the account by their status - parked or hosted.
