There are 2 services that you’ll need for a functioning site - a domain name and a hosting plan for it. When you type the domain name in your browser, you see the content that is uploaded inside the hosting account, but if that domain isn't linked to such an account or to an e-mail service, it's parked. To put it differently, the domain address is registered and you're its owner, but it lacks content of its own. Rather, it can open either a pre-made “Under Construction / For Sale” page from the registrar company, or it could be directed to any other URL of your choice. The main advantage of parking a domain name is that you can keep it and be sure that no one else will take it. In the meantime, it will not take a slot for a hosted domain address in your account. In addition, you can park domain names if you have a .com, for example, and you register domains with other extensions like .net, .org or country-code ones to forward them to the main website in order to protect a brand name.

Parked Domains in Shared Website Hosting

With each and every shared website hosting plan we offer you are able to park as many domain addresses as you want and unlike other companies, we do not have any service fees for that. Needless to say, you can do this just for domain names that are registered through us as parking a domain is possible only with the registrar, and not through the host unless you have the two services with the same company. We have got a feature-rich Domain Manager tool where you can effortlessly park and un-park domain names, pick one of the templates we offer and add custom text to it, or direct a domain name to a URL of your choice. If you host a parked domain name, our system will change its name servers and set up a folder in the File Manager automatically. Additionally you can set filters to check out only the parked or only the hosted domains, which will allow you to manage them easy and fast.
