If you want to register a domain name to ensure that nobody else is going to take it, however, you haven't built the site for it yet, you may park it. It's a service that registrar companies offer whenever a domain isn't connected to any web or email hosting service. By doing this, you are able to protect a brand name, for instance, and you'll own the domain address in question even though it won't load any content. If you would like, you can select some default template that the registrar provides, like For Sale or Under Construction, you can also direct the domain to a new web address. Your second option is extremely helpful in case you own a number of domain names, but you want all of them to open the same site. As an example, you can register domain.net and domain.org, then park them and direct them to domain.com. In this example, you're going to need hosting for the third domain only and the traffic to the other ones is going to be redirected to it.

Parked Domains in Shared Website Hosting

When you have a Linux shared website hosting packages through our company, you'll be able to park any of your domains with ease. The function is available for the domain names registered with us, and not for the ones which are only hosted here and directed from another company, because a domain can be parked only through its registrar. Our Domain Manager tool will permit you to choose from a number of templates and you will be able to add your own text to any of them. Redirecting a domain name to a new URL is as easy as just typing the Internet address and saving it. If you want to host any of your parked domain names, it takes only a mouse click to do it and our system is going to do the rest - changing the name servers, creating a domain folder in your account, creating the required DNS records, etc. For easier administration, you are going to be able to filter the domains registered in the account by their status - parked or hosted.
