A parked domain name is one that is taken, but it is not linked to some other service - web or email hosting. Essentially, this type of domain name won't open any actual content in case you type it within an Internet browser, but no one can take it as you have already registered it and you are its owner. The benefit of getting a domain name and parking it afterwards is that you are able to keep it and not worry that somebody else may register it meanwhile if, for example, the website for it is not ready yet. You are able to create a short-term Under Construction website page for a parked domain address while you're working on the website, or direct it to another web address - temporarily or permanently. The second option can be employed if you have already registered domain.com, for instance, and you obtain domain.net and domain.org, so as to protect a brand name or a trademark. In such a case, the .net and .org domain addresses can be parked and forwarded to the .com as you don't need individual sites for them.

Parked Domains in Hosting

If you have a Linux hosting packages from our company, you are going to be able to park all of your domains easily. The feature is offered for the domain names registered through our company, but not for the ones which are only hosted here and pointed from some other company, as a domain can be parked only through its registrar. Our Domain Manager tool will permit you to select from a variety of templates and you will be able to include custom text to any one of them. Redirecting a domain address to another URL is as easy as just typing the Internet address and saving it. If you would like to host any of your parked domain names, it takes only a mouse click to do it and our system will do the rest - changing the name servers, creating a domain folder in your account, creating the necessary DNS records, etc. For simpler control, you are going to be able to filter the domains registered inside the account by their status - parked or hosted.
