If you wish to register a domain to make sure that no one else is going to take it, however, you have not developed the web site for it yet, you may park it. It's a feature that registrar companies provide whenever a domain is not linked to any web or email hosting service. This way, you can protect a brand name, for instance, and you will own the domain name in question although it will not load any content. If you wish, you can pick some default template that the registrar offers, like For Sale or Under Construction, or you can direct the domain to an alternative web address. The second option is very helpful if you own a number of 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're going to need hosting for the third domain name only and the traffic to the other ones will be redirected to it.
Parked Domains in Cloud Hosting
With each and every cloud hosting plan which we offer you will be able to park as many domains as you would like and in contrast to other companies, we do not have any fees for that. Needless to say, you can do this only for domain addresses which are registered through us as parking a domain is possible only through the registrar, and not through the host unless you have both services with just one company. We have a feature-rich Domain Manager tool where you can effortlessly park and un-park domain addresses, pick one of the templates that we offer and add custom text to it, or forward a domain address to a URL of your preference. If you host a parked domain address, our system will modify 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 addresses, that will allow you to control them really easy.
