If you wish to register a domain name to make sure that nobody else will take it, but you have not built the site for it yet, you can park it. This is a service that registrar companies offer when a domain isn't linked to any web or email hosting service. That way, you'll be able to protect a brand name, for instance, and you will own the domain in question although it won't load any content. If you'd like, you can pick some default template that the registrar provides, like For Sale or Under Construction, alternatively you can forward the domain name to another web address. Your second option is very helpful in case you own a number of domains, but you want each and every one of them to open the same website. For example, you can register domain.net and domain.org, then park them and forward them to domain.com. In this example, you are going to 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 Website Hosting

With each and every cloud website hosting package that we offer you are able to park as many domain names as you would like and unlike other companies, we do not have any service fees for that. Naturally, this can be done only for domain names which are registered through our company because parking a domain is possible only with the registrar, and not through the host unless you have both services with only one company. We've got a feature-rich Domain Manager tool where you can effortlessly park and un-park domain addresses, select one of the templates we provide and add custom text to it, or forward a domain address to a URL of your preference. If you host a parked domain address, our system will modify its name servers and create a folder in the File Manager automatically. Also you can set filters to check out only the parked or only the hosted domains, that will allow you to manage them easy and fast.
