If you want to register a domain to make certain that nobody else will take it, however, you haven't created the website for it yet, you may park it. This is a feature that registrar companies offer when a domain is not connected to any web or email hosting service. This way, you can protect a brand name, for example, and you will own the domain address in question even though it won't load any content. If you would like, you may choose some standard template that the registrar provides, such as For Sale or Under Construction, or you can forward the domain name to another web address. Your second option is very useful if you own a few domain names, but you want every one of them to open the same website. As an illustration, you could register domain.net and domain.org, then park them and direct them to domain.com. In this example, you are going to need hosting for the third domain name only and the traffic to the other ones is going to be redirected to it.

Parked Domains in Cloud Website Hosting

When you have a cloud website hosting through us, you'll be able to park any of your domains with ease. The function is available for the domains registered with us, but not for the ones that are only hosted here and directed from some other company, because a domain can be parked only through its registrar. Our Domain Manager instrument will permit you to select from a number of different templates and you will be able to add your own text to each of them. Forwarding a domain address to a different URL is as easy as simply typing the web address and saving it. If you would like to host any of your parked domain names, it takes simply a mouse click to do it and our system will do the rest - changing the name servers, creating a domain folder in your account, setting up the needed DNS records, etc. For easier control, you are going to be able to filter the domains registered within the account by their status - parked or hosted.
