A parked domain name is one that is taken, yet it is not associated with some other service - web or e mail hosting. In other words, such a domain name will not load any actual content if you type it in a browser, but no one can take it as you have already registered it and you are its owner. The advantage of obtaining a domain and parking it afterwards is that you can keep it and not worry that someone else may register it meanwhile if, for example, the site for it is not ready yet. You can set a short-term Under Construction website page for a parked domain name while you are working on your web site, or forward it to some other web address - temporarily or permanently. The second option can be employed if you have already registered domain.com, for instance, and you get domain.net and domain.org, so that you can protect a brand name or a trademark. In this situation, the .net and .org domains can be parked and forwarded to the .com as you do not need separate websites for them.
Parked Domains in Website Hosting
With each and every website hosting plan we offer you’re able to park as many domains as you would like and unlike other companies, we do not have any service fees for that. Of course, you can do this just for domain names that are registered through our company since parking a domain is possible only with the registrar, but not through the host unless you have the two services with the exact same company. We've got a feature-rich Domain Manager tool where you can easily park and un-park domain addresses, pick one of the templates that we provide and add custom text to it, or forward a domain name to a URL of your choice. If you host a parked domain address, our system will modify its name servers and set up a folder in the File Manager automatically. Also you can set filters and see only the parked or only the hosted domain names, which will allow you to handle them quick and simple.
Parked Domains in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you get a semi-dedicated server plan from us, you will be able to register and park as many domain addresses as you wish. In contrast to other companies, we will not charge you an additional fee for this feature. You could park a domain name with only two clicks using the Domain Manager tool, which you can access through the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. In case you want to use a template, you will have a few different ones to select from and you'll be able to add custom text to each of them. The feature-rich Domain Manager allows you to set filters to check out only the hosted or only the parked domains in your account. With the same tool, you can also un-park a domain and host it within your account with a click. Our system will change the name servers of the domain address and will create its folder in the File Manager section, and the required DNS records for it, automatically.
