If you wish to register a domain to make certain that no one else will take it, but you haven't created the website for it yet, you may park it. That is a service that registrar companies provide when a domain address is not linked to any web or email hosting service. This way, you'll be able to protect a brand name, for instance, and you'll own the domain in question even though it won't load any content. If you'd like, you can pick some standard template that the registrar offers, such as For Sale or Under Construction, or you can direct the domain to another web address. The second option is very helpful in case you own a number of domain names, but you want every one of them to open the same website. For example, you could register domain.net and domain.org, then park them and direct them to domain.com. In this example, you will need hosting for the third domain address only and the traffic to the other ones will be redirected to it.
Parked Domains in Shared Web Hosting
When you have a shared web hosting from our company, you will be able to park all of your domains effortlessly. The feature is available for the domains registered with our company, and not for the ones that are only hosted here and pointed from some other company, since a domain name can be parked only through its registrar. Our Domain Manager instrument will enable you to pick from a number of different templates and you are going to be able to add custom text to each of them. Redirecting a domain address to another URL is as easy as just typing the Internet 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 will do the rest - changing the name servers, setting up a domain folder in your account, setting up the required DNS records, etc. For simpler management, you'll be able to filter the domains registered inside the account by their status - parked or hosted.
