A parked domain address is one that's taken, but it's not connected to another service - web or e-mail hosting. Essentially, such a domain address won't open any real content if you type it in a web browser, but no one else 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 somebody else might register it in the meantime if, for example, the website for it is not ready yet. You are able to set a temporary Under Construction webpage for a parked domain while you are working on your web site, or forward it to another web address - temporarily or permanently. The second option can be employed if you have already registered domain.com, for example, and you obtain domain.net and domain.org, so that you can protect a brand name or a trademark. In this situation, the .net and .org domain addresses can be parked and forwarded to the .com because you don't need separate websites for them.

Parked Domains in Shared Website Hosting

When you get a shared website hosting plan through our company, you'll be able to register as many domains as you would like and park any one of them with only a couple of mouse clicks via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Using our feature-rich Domain Manager instrument, you can choose from a number of templates and add your own text to any one of them. If you want to forward a domain name, all it requires is to type the URL, save it, and you will be all set. You can un-park a domain and host it within your account just as easily and our system will do all the needed changes - update the domain servers, create DNS records for it, set up a domain folder inside the File Manager part of your account, etc. In case you have a lot of domain names registered through our company, you will be able to use a filter to see just the parked or only the hosted ones for much easier administration. Having in mind that you could park a domain only with its registrar, you can use this feature only for domains that are registered through us, but not through another provider.
