A parked domain is one which is taken, however it's not linked to another service - web or e mail hosting. Put simply, this kind of domain won't open any actual content if you type it within a web browser, but nobody can take it as you have already registered it and you are its owner. The best thing about obtaining a domain name and parking it afterwards is that you are able to keep it and not worry that somebody else may register it meanwhile if, for example, the site for it is not ready yet. You can set a temporary Under Construction page for a parked Internet domain while you are working on your website, or forward it to some other 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 such a case, the .net and .org domain names can be parked and forwarded to the .com because you don't need separate sites for them.
Parked Domains in Cloud Website Hosting
If you buy a cloud website hosting plan from our company, you'll be able to register as many domains as you wish and park any one of them with a few clicks using your Hepsia hosting CP. Through our feature-rich Domain Manager tool, you can select from several templates and add your own text to each of them. If you'd like to forward a domain address, all it requires is to type the URL, save it, and you'll be all set. You can un-park a domain name and host it within your account just as easily and our system will do all the required changes - update the domain address servers, create DNS records for it, create a domain folder inside the File Manager part of your account, etcetera. In case you have a large number of domain addresses registered using our company, you’ll be able to use a filter and check out only the parked or only the hosted ones for much easier management. Considering that you can park a domain address only with its registrar, you can use this feature only for domains which are registered through us, but not through another provider.
