A parked domain is one which is taken, but it's not associated with some other service - web or e-mail hosting. Put simply, this kind of domain name will not open any actual content when you type it within a web browser, but nobody else can take it as you've already registered it and you are its owner. The benefit of getting a domain name and parking it afterwards is the fact that you can keep it and not stress that somebody else may register it meanwhile if, for instance, the site for it is not ready yet. You can create a short-term Under Construction webpage for a parked domain address while you are working on the web site, or direct it to some other web address - temporarily or permanently. The second option can be used if you have already registered domain.com, for example, and you obtain domain.net and domain.org, so as to protect a brand name or a trademark. In such a case, the .net and .org domain names can be parked and directed to the .com since you don't need individual sites for them.
Parked Domains in Shared Hosting
You're going to be able to park as many domain names as you would like with any of the shared hosting plans which we offer you. Naturally, this feature is offered only for domain addresses registered with us because the service is always provided only by the registrar. As opposed to most companies, we don't charge anything extra for parking a domain name and the process is going to take only a few mouse clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. We've got a couple of parking templates to select from where you can include custom text. If you decide to host a parked domain name in the future, adding it to your account requires just a click. Everything essential for the site to start showing up, such as setting up a domain folder and creating DNS records will be done automatically by us. The feature-rich Domain Manager tool will enable you to view a full list of the domains you have registered through our company and you will be able to set a filter to see just the parked or only the hosted ones.
