A parked domain name is one that is taken, but it's not connected to any other service - web or email hosting. In other words, this type of domain name will not open any real content in case you type it inside a browser, but no one else can take it as you've already registered it and you are its owner. The best thing about getting a domain and parking it afterwards is the fact that you can keep it and not worry that someone else may register it in the meantime if, for example, the website for it is not ready yet. You are able to set a short-term Under Construction website page for a parked Internet domain while you are working on the website, or direct it to some other web address - temporarily or permanently. The second option can be used when you have already registered domain.com, for instance, and you obtain domain.net and domain.org, in order to protect a brand name or a trademark. In such a case, the .net and .org domain names can be parked and directed to the .com because you do not need individual sites for them.
Parked Domains in Cloud Web Hosting
When you have a cloud web hosting through our company, you're going to be able to park all of your domains with ease. The feature is available for the domains registered with our company, but not for the ones that are only hosted here and directed from some other company, since a domain name can be parked only through its registrar. Our Domain Manager tool will permit you to pick from a number of templates and you will be able to add your own text to any of them. Redirecting a domain to a new URL is as easy as simply typing the Internet address and saving it. If you decide to host any of your parked domains, it takes simply a click to do it and our system will do the rest - changing the name servers, setting up a domain folder in your account, creating the required DNS records, etc. For much easier administration, you'll be able to filter the domains registered within the account by their status - parked or hosted.
