A parked domain address is one that is taken, but it's not associated with some other service - web or email hosting. In other words, this type of domain will not load any actual content if you type it within a browser, but no one else can take it as you have already registered it and you are its owner. The main advantage of obtaining a domain and parking it afterwards is that you’ll be able to keep it and not worry that someone else may register it in the meantime if, for instance, the site for it is not ready yet. You could create a short-term Under Construction page for a parked domain name while you are working on your site, or direct it to some other web address - temporarily or permanently. The second option can be employed when 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 this case, the .net and .org domain addresses can be parked and directed to the .com because you don't need individual sites for them.

Parked Domains in Shared Hosting

When you have a Linux shared hosting through us, you'll be able to park all of your domain names with ease. The feature is offered for the domain addresses registered through our company, and not for the ones which are only hosted here and pointed from another company, as a domain address can be parked only through its registrar. Our Domain Manager tool will allow you to select from a number of different templates and you're going to be able to include your own text to each of them. Redirecting a domain address to an alternative URL is as easy as only typing the web address and saving it. If you want to host any of your parked domain names, it takes simply a mouse click to do it and our system is going to do the rest - changing the name servers, setting up a domain folder in your account, creating the necessary DNS records, etc. For much easier management, you will be able to filter the domain names registered in the account by their status - parked or hosted.
