If you wish to register a domain name to make certain that nobody else is going to take it, but you have not created the web site for it yet, you could park it. This is a feature that registrar companies provide when a domain isn't linked to any web or e-mail hosting service. This way, you are able to protect a brand name, for instance, and you'll own the domain in question although it won't load any content. If you would like, you can select some standard template that the registrar offers, like For Sale or Under Construction, or you can direct the domain to an alternative web address. The second option is extremely helpful if you own a few domain names, but you want every one of them to open the same site. As an illustration, you may register domain.net and domain.org, then park them and direct them to domain.com. In this example, you're going to need hosting for the third domain name only and the traffic to the other ones will be redirected to it.
Parked Domains in Shared Website Hosting
With each and every shared website hosting plan that we offer you’ll be able to park as many domain names as you want and unlike other companies, we do not have any fees for that. Of course, you can do this only for domains which 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 conveniently park and un-park domains, choose one of the templates we provide and add custom text to it, or forward a domain to a URL of your choice. If you host a parked domain, our system will change its name servers and set up a folder in the File Manager automatically. You could also set filters and see only the parked or only the hosted domains, that will allow you to handle them quick and simple.
