If you want to register a domain to make sure that nobody else is going to take it, but you have not created the site for it yet, you could park it. This is a service that registrar companies provide whenever a domain isn't connected to any web or email hosting service. In this way, you'll be able to protect a brand name, for example, and you will own the domain address in question although it won't open any content. If you wish, you can select some standard template that the registrar provides, like For Sale or Under Construction, or you can forward the domain name to a different web address. The second option is very helpful in case you own a few domains, 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 forward them to domain.com. In this example, you will need hosting for the third domain address only and the traffic to the other ones is going to be redirected to it.

Parked Domains in Cloud Hosting

With each and every cloud hosting plan we offer you’ll be able to park as many domains as you want and unlike other companies, we do not have any fees for that. Naturally, this can be done just for domains which are registered through our company because parking a domain is possible only with the registrar, but not through the host unless you have the two services with the same company. We've got a feature-rich Domain Manager tool where you can quickly park and un-park domains, choose one of the templates that we offer and add custom text to it, or forward a domain name to a URL of your choice. If you host a parked domain address, our system will change its name servers and set up a folder in the File Manager automatically. Also you can set filters and see only the parked or only the hosted domain addresses, that will permit you to handle them quick and simple.
