A parked domain name is one which is taken, but it is not connected to some other service - web or email hosting. Basically, such a domain won't load any real content in case you type it in a browser, but nobody can take it as you've already registered it and you are its owner. The advantage of getting a domain and parking it afterwards is the fact that you can keep it and not stress that somebody else may register it in the meantime if, for example, the website for it is not ready yet. You are able to create a temporary Under Construction website page for a parked domain name while you're working on your site, or direct it to some other web address - temporarily or permanently. The second option can be used if 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 domain addresses can be parked and directed to the .com because you don't need different websites for them.

Parked Domains in Cloud Hosting

When you have a cloud hosting with our company, you are going to be able to park all of your domains effortlessly. The feature is offered for the domain names registered with our company, but not for the ones which are only hosted here and pointed from another company, because a domain can be parked only through its registrar. Our Domain Manager instrument will permit you to choose from a number of different templates and you are going to be able to include custom text to any of them. Forwarding a domain address to another 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 just a click to do it and our system will do the rest - changing the name servers, setting up a domain folder in your account, creating the necessary DNS records, etc. For easier management, you'll be able to filter the domains registered in the account by their status - parked or hosted.
