A parked domain address is one that's taken, yet it is not associated with any other service - web or email hosting. Put simply, this kind of domain name won't open any real content in case you type it inside a web browser, but no one can take it as you have already registered it and you are its owner. The benefit of getting a domain name and parking it afterwards is that you can keep it and not stress that somebody else might register it meanwhile if, for example, the website for it is not ready yet. You may create a temporary Under Construction webpage for a parked Internet domain while you are working on the web site, or direct it to another web address - temporarily or permanently. The second option can be used if you have already registered domain.com, for instance, and you acquire domain.net and domain.org, so that you can protect a brand name or a trademark. In this situation, the .net and .org domain names can be parked and forwarded to the .com as you do not need separate sites for them.
Parked Domains in Cloud Web Hosting
With each and every cloud web hosting plan we offer you’ll be able to park as many domains as you would like and unlike other companies, we do not have any service fees for that. However, this can be done only for domain names which are registered through us because parking a domain is possible only through the registrar, and not through the host unless you have both services with only one company. We have a feature-rich Domain Manager tool where you can easily park and un-park domain names, pick 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 name, our system will change its name servers and create a folder in the File Manager automatically. You can also set filters to check out only the parked or only the hosted domain names, that will permit you to control them easy and fast.
