A parked Internet domain is one that is taken, yet it is not linked to some other service - web or e-mail hosting. Essentially, this kind of domain will not load any real content if you type it in a browser, but nobody can take it as you've already registered it and you are its owner. The benefit of obtaining a domain and parking it afterwards is the fact that you will be able to keep it and not worry that someone else could possibly register it meanwhile if, for instance, the website for it is not ready yet. You can create a temporary Under Construction page for a parked Internet domain while you're working on the web site, or forward it to some other web address - temporarily or permanently. The second option can be employed if 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 this situation, the .net and .org domain addresses can be parked and forwarded to the .com because you don't need separate sites for them.

Parked Domains in Hosting

If you have a hosting through us, you are going to be able to park all of your domain names easily. The feature is available for the domain names registered with our company, but not for the ones that are only hosted here and pointed from some other company, because a domain name can be parked only through its registrar. Our Domain Manager instrument will enable you to select from a number of different templates and you are going to be able to include custom text to each of them. Redirecting a domain name to an alternative URL is as easy as just typing the web address and saving it. If you decide to host any of your parked domain names, it takes simply a click to do it and our system is going to do the rest - changing the name servers, setting up a domain folder in your account, setting up the necessary DNS records, etc. For much easier control, you'll be able to filter the domain addresses registered within the account by their status - parked or hosted.
