If you want to register a domain name to ensure that no one else will take it, but you haven't built the website for it yet, you can park it. It's a service that registrar companies offer whenever a domain address isn't linked to any web or email hosting service. That way, you are able to protect a brand name, for instance, and you will own the domain name in question although it won't open any content. If you wish, you may choose some standard template that the registrar provides, such as For Sale or Under Construction, alternatively you can forward the domain name to another web address. Your second option is extremely helpful if you own a few domain names, but you want every one of them to open the same site. As an illustration, you may register domain.net and domain.org, then park them and direct them to domain.com. In this example, you'll need hosting for the third domain address only and the traffic to the other ones will be redirected to it.
Parked Domains in Cloud Hosting
When you have a Linux cloud hosting packages from us, you're going to be able to park any of your domain names with ease. The function is available for the domain addresses registered with our company, and not for the ones that are only hosted here and pointed from another company, as a domain name can be parked only through its registrar. Our Domain Manager instrument will allow you to pick from a number of templates and you're going to be able to include your own text to any one of them. Forwarding a domain address to another URL is as easy as just typing the web address and saving it. If you decide 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, creating the needed DNS records, etc. For much easier control, you're going to be able to filter the domain names registered in the account by their status - parked or hosted.
