A parked domain name is one that is taken, but it's not linked to some other service - web or e-mail hosting. In other words, this kind of domain name will not open any actual content when you type it in a browser, but no one 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 that you will be able to keep it and not worry that someone else could possibly register it meanwhile if, for example, the site for it is not ready yet. You may create a short-term Under Construction website page for a parked domain while you're working on your web site, or forward it to another web address - temporarily or permanently. The latter option can be employed if you have already registered domain.com, for instance, and you get domain.net and domain.org, in order to protect a brand name or a trademark. In this case, the .net and .org domain names can be parked and forwarded to the .com because you don't need different websites for them.

Parked Domains in Website Hosting

If you have a Linux website hosting packages from our company, you're going to be able to park all of your domains with ease. The feature is offered for the domain addresses registered through our company, and not for the ones that are only hosted here and pointed from another company, since a domain can be parked only through its registrar. Our Domain Manager instrument will enable you to select from a number of different templates and you will be able to add custom text to each of them. Redirecting a domain name to a new URL is as easy as only typing the web 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 needed DNS records, etc. For easier management, you will be able to filter the domain names registered inside the account by their status - parked or hosted.
