There are 2 services you need for a functioning site - a domain name and a hosting plan for it. When you type the Internet domain in your web browser, you see the content that’s uploaded in the website hosting account, but if that domain address isn't linked to such an account or to an e-mail service, it is parked. To put it differently, the domain name is registered and you are its owner, but it doesn't have any content of its own. Rather, it can open either a pre-made “Under Construction / For Sale” Internet page from the registrar company, or it could be directed to any other URL of your choice. The main benefit of parking a domain name is that you can keep it and ensure that no one else will take it. At the same time, it's not going to take a slot for a hosted domain name within your account. You may also park domains if you have a .com, for instance, and you register domain names with other extensions such as .net, .org or country-code ones to direct them to the main site as a way to protect a brand name.

Parked Domains in Shared Website Hosting

With each and every shared website hosting package which we offer you are able to park as many domain names as you would like and unlike other companies, we don't have any fees for that. Naturally, you can do this only for domain names that are registered through our company as parking a domain is possible only through the registrar, but not through the host unless you have the two services with just one company. We have a feature-rich Domain Manager tool where you can conveniently park and un-park domain addresses, choose one of the templates we offer and add custom text to it, or direct a domain name 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. Also you can set filters and see only the parked or only the hosted domains, that will enable you to control them fast and easy.
