There are two services you need for a functioning website - a domain plus a web hosting plan for it. Each time you type the Internet domain in your web browser, you see the content that is uploaded inside the web hosting account, but if that domain is not linked to such an account or to an email service, it is parked. Put simply, the domain is registered and you're its owner, but it does not have any content of its own. Rather, it can open either a pre-made “Under Construction / For Sale” page from the registrar company, or it may be directed to any other URL of your choice. The benefit of parking a domain name is that you can keep it and ensure that nobody else will take it. Meanwhile, it's not going to occupy a slot for a hosted domain address in your account. You can also park domain names if you have a .com, for example, and you register domains with other extensions such as .net, .org or country-code ones to direct them to the main site so as to protect a brand name.
Parked Domains in Cloud Hosting
When you get a cloud hosting plan through us, you are going to be able to register as many domains as you would like and park any of them with just a few mouse clicks through your Hepsia hosting CP. Through our feature-rich Domain Manager tool, you can choose from a number of templates and add your own text to any one of them. If you would like to forward a domain address, all it requires is to type the URL, save it, and you'll be all set. You are able to un-park a domain and host it in your account just as easily and our system is going to do all the required adjustments - update the domain address servers, set up DNS records for it, create a domain folder inside the File Manager area of your account, etc. If you have a large number of domain names registered using our company, you’ll be able to use a filter to see only the parked or just the hosted ones for easier management. Considering you could park a domain name only with the registrar company, you can employ this feature only for domains that are registered through us, but not through another company.
