If you want to register a domain to make sure that no one else will take it, but you haven't developed the site for it yet, you can park it. It's a service that registrar companies offer whenever a domain address isn't connected to any web or email hosting service. By doing this, you'll be able to protect a brand name, for instance, and you will own the domain in question even though it won't load any content. If you wish, you can pick some default template that the registrar provides, like For Sale or Under Construction, alternatively you can forward the domain name to a different web address. The second option is very helpful if you own a few domains, but you want every one of them to open the same website. As an example, you could register domain.net and domain.org, then park them and forward them to domain.com. In this example, you will need hosting for the third domain name only and the traffic to the other ones is going to be redirected to it.
Parked Domains in Hosting
With each and every hosting package we offer you’ll be able to park as many domain names as you would like and in contrast to other companies, we do not have any service fees for that. Needless to say, this can be done just for domain addresses which are registered through our company because 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 have a feature-rich Domain Manager tool where you can effortlessly park and un-park domain addresses, select one of the templates that we provide and add custom text to it, or forward a domain to a URL of your preference. If you host a parked domain name, our system will modify 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 domains, which will enable you to handle them quick and simple.
