There are two services that you’ll need for a working web site - a domain name and a hosting plan for it. If you type the Internet domain in your Internet browser, you see the content that’s uploaded in the website hosting account, but if that domain is not linked to such an account or to an email service, it's parked. Put simply, the domain name is registered and you're its owner, but it doesn't have any content of its own. Rather, it can open either a pre-made “Under Construction / For Sale” Internet page from the registrar company, or it could be forwarded to any other URL of your choice. The advantage of parking a domain address is that you can keep it and be sure that nobody else is going to take it. At the same time, it's not going to occupy a slot for a hosted domain address inside your account. You may also park domains if you have a .com, for instance, and you register domains with other extensions like .net, .org or country-code ones to direct them to the main website as a way to protect a brand name.

Parked Domains in Cloud Hosting

With each and every cloud hosting package we offer you’re able to park as many domains as you want and in contrast to other companies, we don't have any service fees for that. Naturally, this can be done only for domains which are registered through us as parking a domain is possible only with the registrar, and not through the host unless you have the two services with only one company. We have a feature-rich Domain Manager tool where you can easily park and un-park domain names, pick one of the templates that we offer and add custom text to it, or direct a domain name to a URL of your preference. If you host a parked domain address, our system will change its name servers and create a folder in the File Manager automatically. You can also set filters to check out only the parked or only the hosted domain names, which will permit you to control them quick and simple.
