A parked domain address is one which is taken, but it's not connected to another service - web or e mail hosting. Basically, this type of domain will not load any real content in case you type it in a web browser, but nobody 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 the fact that you are able to keep it and not worry that somebody else may register it in the meantime if, for example, the website for it is not ready yet. You are able to set a temporary Under Construction website page for a parked Internet domain while you are working on the web site, or direct it to another web address - temporarily or permanently. The second option can be used 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 cases like this, the .net and .org domains can be parked and directed to the .com because you do not need different websites for them.

Parked Domains in Hosting

If you have a Linux hosting packages through us, you'll be able to park all of your domains easily. The function is offered for the domain addresses registered with us, and not for the ones which are only hosted here and directed from some other company, as a domain name can be parked only through its registrar. Our Domain Manager instrument will permit you to choose from a number of different templates and you'll be able to include your own text to any one of them. Forwarding a domain to a new URL is as easy as simply typing the web address and saving it. If you decide 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, setting up the required DNS records, etc. For easier administration, you are going to be able to filter the domains registered in the account by their status - parked or hosted.
