What exactly are parked domain names? When could they come in real handy? How could you park a domain?
There are 2 services you'll need for a functioning website - a domain name and a web hosting plan for it. If you type the domain name in your web browser, you see the content that’s uploaded in the web hosting account, but if that domain isn't linked to such an account or to an email service, it is parked. Put simply, the domain address is registered and you're its owner, but it does not have any content of its own. Instead, it can open either a pre-made “Under Construction / For Sale” Internet page from the registrar company, or it may be directed to any other URL of your choice. The advantage of parking a domain is that you can keep it and make sure that no one else is going to take it. At the same time, it's not going to block a slot for a hosted domain name inside your account. You could also park domain names if you have a .com, for example, and you register domains with other extensions like .net, .org or country-code ones to direct them to the main site as a way to protect a brand name.
Parked Domains in Website Hosting
You will be able to park as many domain names as you want with any of the website hosting
plans we provide. Needless to say, this feature is available only for domain addresses registered with us because the service is always provided only by the registrar. As opposed to most companies, we do not charge anything additional for parking a domain address and the process is going to take just a couple of clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. We also have a number of parking templates to pick from where you can include custom text. If you want to host a parked domain address in the future, adding it to your account will take simply a click. Everything required for the site to start showing up, like creating a domain folder and setting up DNS records will be done automatically by our system. Our feature-rich Domain Manager tool will allow you to view a full list of the domain addresses you have registered using us and you can set a filter to see just the parked or just the hosted ones.
