A parked Internet domain is one that's taken, but it's not associated with any other service - web or email hosting. Essentially, this type of domain won't open any actual content in case you type it in an Internet browser, but nobody can take it as you've already registered it and you are its owner. The best thing about getting a domain and parking it afterwards is the fact that you will be able to keep it and not stress that somebody else could possibly register it meanwhile if, for instance, the site for it is not ready yet. You may create a short-term Under Construction website page for a parked domain name while you are working on your site, or direct 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 acquire 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 do not need different sites for them.
Parked Domains in Cloud Website Hosting
With each and every cloud website hosting plan that we offer you’re able to park as many domains as you wish and unlike other companies, we don't have any service fees for that. Of course, you can do this only for domain addresses that are registered through us because parking a domain is possible only through the registrar, but not through the host unless you have the two services with just one company. We have a feature-rich Domain Manager tool where you can quickly park and un-park domain names, choose one of the templates that we offer and add custom text to it, or forward a domain to a URL of your choice. If you host a parked domain name, our system will modify its name servers and create a folder in the File Manager automatically. You could also set filters to check out only the parked or only the hosted domains, that will enable you to control them fast and easy.
