A parked domain is one that is taken, yet it is not associated with another service - web or e-mail hosting. Essentially, this kind of domain address will not open any real content when you type it within a web browser, but nobody can take it as you've already registered it and you are its owner. The advantage of obtaining a domain name and parking it afterwards is the fact that you’ll be able to keep it and not worry that someone else may register it meanwhile if, for instance, the site for it is not ready yet. You could set a short-term Under Construction website page for a parked Internet domain while you're working on your site, or forward it to another web address - temporarily or permanently. The second option can be used when you have already registered domain.com, for example, and you get domain.net and domain.org, so as to protect a brand name or a trademark. In cases like this, the .net and .org domain names can be parked and directed to the .com because you do not need separate sites for them.

Parked Domains in Cloud Website Hosting

With each and every cloud website hosting package which we offer you are able to park as many domain names as you would like and unlike other companies, we don't have any fees for that. However, this can be done only for domains 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 only one company. We have got a feature-rich Domain Manager tool where you can quickly park and un-park domain addresses, select one of the templates we offer and add custom text to it, or forward a domain address to a URL of your preference. If you host a parked domain, our system will change its name servers and set up a folder in the File Manager automatically. Additionally you can set filters to check out only the parked or only the hosted domain addresses, that will allow you to control them easy and fast.
