A parked domain is one which is taken, yet it is not linked to another service - web or email hosting. Basically, this type of domain will not load any actual content when you type it within a web browser, but nobody can take it as you've already registered it and you are its owner. The main advantage of getting a domain and parking it afterwards is the fact that you are able to keep it and not worry that somebody else may register it meanwhile if, for instance, the website for it is not ready yet. You are able to set a short-term Under Construction website page for a parked Internet domain while you are working on the site, or forward it to some other web address - temporarily or permanently. The latter option can be employed if you have already registered domain.com, for example, and you obtain domain.net and domain.org, so that you can protect a brand name or a trademark. In cases like this, the .net and .org domain addresses can be parked and directed to the .com as you do not need individual sites for them.

Parked Domains in Cloud Hosting

With each and every cloud hosting plan we offer you are able to park as many domain addresses as you wish and in contrast to other companies, we don't have any fees for that. Naturally, this can be done only for domain names that are registered through us as parking a domain is possible only with the registrar, but not through the host unless you have both services with the exact same company. We've got a feature-rich Domain Manager tool where you can effortlessly park and un-park domain names, choose one of the templates that we offer and add custom text to it, or direct a domain address to a URL of your preference. 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 domain addresses, which will enable you to handle them really easy.
