There are two separate services you'll need for a working website - a domain name plus a website hosting plan for it. If you type the Internet domain in your web browser, you see the content that is uploaded inside the hosting account, but if that domain address isn't linked to such an account or to an e-mail service, it's parked. To put it differently, the domain is registered and you are its owner, but it lacks content of its own. Instead, it can open either a pre-made “Under Construction / For Sale” Internet page from the registrar company, or it could be forwarded to any other URL of your choice. The main benefit of parking a domain address is that you can keep it and make sure that no one else will take it. At the same time, it will not take a slot for a hosted domain name within your account. You can also park domains if you have a .com, for example, and you register domain addresses with other extensions such as .net, .org or country-code ones to direct them to the main site as a way to protect a brand name.
Parked Domains in Cloud Hosting
You'll be able to park as many domain names as you want with any of the cloud hosting packages that we provide. Needless to say, this feature is provided only for domains registered here since the service is always provided only by the registrar. Unlike the majority of service providers, we don't charge anything additional for parking a domain and the process is going to take just a few mouse clicks in your Hepsia CP. We also have a few parking templates to select from where you can add custom text. If you want to host a parked domain name in the future, adding it to your account takes just a click. Everything required for your website to start showing up, such as setting up a domain folder and setting up DNS records will be done automatically by us. Our feature-rich Domain Manager tool will enable you to see a full list of the domain names you have registered using us and you’ll be able to set a filter to see only the parked or just the hosted ones.
