There are two services you'll need for a functioning web site - a domain plus a hosting plan for it. If you type the Internet domain in your Internet browser, you see the content that is uploaded inside the web hosting account, but if that domain name isn't linked to such an account or to an e-mail service, it's parked. To put it differently, the domain is registered and you are its owner, but it does not have any content of its own. Rather, it can open either a pre-made “Under Construction / For Sale” webpage from the registrar company, or it can be forwarded to some other URL of your choice. The main advantage of parking a domain address is that you can keep it and ensure that no one else will take it. In the meantime, it won't occupy a slot for a hosted domain address inside your account. You may also park domains if you have a .com, for instance, and you register domain names with other extensions like .net, .org or country-code ones to forward them to the main site so as to protect a brand name.

Parked Domains in Web Hosting

With each and every web hosting plan we offer you can park as many domain addresses as you wish and in contrast to other companies, we do not have any fees for that. However, this can be done exclusively for domain addresses that are registered through us as parking a domain is possible only through the registrar, but not through the host unless you have the two services with the same company. We have a feature-rich Domain Manager tool where you can quickly park and un-park domain addresses, select one of the templates that we offer and add custom text to it, or direct a domain address to a URL of your preference. If you host a parked domain name, our system will modify its name servers and set up a folder in the File Manager automatically. Additionally you can set filters to check out only the parked or only the hosted domain addresses, which will allow you to handle them quick and simple.
