If you wish to register a domain to make sure that nobody else is going to take it, however, you have not built the website for it yet, you may park it. This is a feature that registrar companies offer whenever a domain address is not connected to any web or email hosting service. That way, you are able to protect a brand name, for instance, and you will own the domain address in question even though it will not open any content. If you would like, you can pick some standard template that the registrar offers, such as For Sale or Under Construction, or you can direct the domain to a different web address. The second option is very useful if you own a number of 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'll need hosting for the third domain only and the traffic to the other ones is going to be redirected to it.
Parked Domains in Website Hosting
With each and every website hosting package we offer you can park as many domain names as you would like and unlike other companies, we don't have any fees for that. Naturally, this can be done only for domain names that are registered through our company as parking a domain is possible only with the registrar, and not through the host unless you have the two services with just one company. We have got a feature-rich Domain Manager tool where you can quickly park and un-park domain addresses, choose one of the templates that we provide and add custom text to it, or forward a domain address to a URL of your preference. If you host a parked domain, our system will modify its name servers and set up a folder in the File Manager automatically. Additionally you can set filters and see only the parked or only the hosted domain addresses, that will permit you to control them really easy.
