A parked domain name is one that is taken, but it's not associated with some other service - web or e mail hosting. Essentially, such a domain won't open any real content when you type it in a browser, but no one else 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 will be able to keep it and not stress that someone else could possibly register it meanwhile if, for example, the website for it is not ready yet. You could create a temporary Under Construction webpage for a parked domain address while you're working on the website, or forward it to some other web address - temporarily or permanently. The latter option can be employed if 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 domains can be parked and forwarded to the .com because you do not need separate sites for them.
Parked Domains in Shared Hosting
If you have a Linux shared hosting service from us, you are going to be able to park any of your domain names easily. The function is offered for the domain addresses registered through our company, and not for the ones which are only hosted here and directed from some other company, because a domain name can be parked only through its registrar. Our Domain Manager tool will permit you to choose from a number of templates and you are going to be able to add your own text to each of them. Redirecting a domain to an alternative URL is as easy as just typing the Internet address and saving it. If you would like to host any of your parked domains, it takes only a click to do it and our system is going to 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 within the account by their status - parked or hosted.
Parked Domains in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you get a semi-dedicated server plan through our company, you are going to be able to register and park as many domains as you want. As opposed to other companies, we are not going to charge you an additional fee for this feature. You can park a domain name with only a couple of mouse clicks through the Domain Manager tool, which you can access via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. In case you want to use a template, you are going to have a few different ones available and you'll be able to add custom text to each of them. The feature-rich Domain Manager enables you to set filters to check out only the hosted or only the parked domain addresses in your account. Using the same tool, you can also un-park a domain and host it within your account with a mouse click. Our system will modify the name servers of the domain and will create its folder in the File Manager section, and the required DNS records for it, automatically.
