A parked domain name is one that's taken, but it is not connected to any other service - web or email hosting. To put it differently, such a domain won't open any actual content when you type it inside a browser, but no one else can take it as you've already registered it and you are its owner. The best thing about getting a domain name and parking it afterwards is the fact that you’re able to keep it and not worry that someone else could possibly register it meanwhile if, for instance, the site for it is not ready yet. You are able to set a temporary Under Construction webpage for a parked domain while you are working on your site, or direct it to another web address - temporarily or permanently. The second option can be employed when you have already registered domain.com, for example, and you obtain domain.net and domain.org, in order to protect a brand name or a trademark. In this case, the .net and .org domain addresses can be parked and forwarded to the .com as you do not need different websites for them.
Parked Domains in Shared Web Hosting
With each and every shared web hosting plan that we offer you are able to park as many domain names as you want and in contrast to other companies, we do not have any service fees for that. Of course, you can do this exclusively for domain addresses which are registered through us since parking a domain is possible only with the registrar, and not through the host unless you have the two services with just one company. We have got a feature-rich Domain Manager tool where you can quickly park and un-park domain addresses, select one of the templates that we provide and add custom text to it, or forward a domain to a URL of your choice. If you host a parked domain name, our system will modify its name servers and set up a folder in the File Manager automatically. Also you can set filters to check out only the parked or only the hosted domain names, which will allow you to manage them easy and fast.
