There are two separate services you need for a functioning website - a domain plus a web hosting plan for it. If you type the domain in your web browser, you see the content that is uploaded within the web hosting account, but if that domain name is not linked to such an account or to an email service, it is parked. Put simply, the domain is registered and you are its owner, but it does not have any content of its own. As a substitute, it can open either a pre-made “Under Construction / For Sale” webpage from the registrar company, or it could be forwarded to any other URL of your choice. The benefit of parking a domain name is that you can keep it and make sure that no one else is going to take it. Meanwhile, it will not occupy a slot for a hosted domain inside your account. You could also park domains if you have a .com, for example, and you register domain names with other extensions such as .net, .org or country-code ones to forward them to the main website as a way to protect a brand name.
Parked Domains in Web Hosting
When you have a web hosting service from our company, you'll be able to park each of your domain names easily. The feature is offered for the domains registered with us, and not for the ones which are only hosted here and pointed from another company, since a domain name can be parked only through its registrar. Our Domain Manager tool will permit you to pick from a number of templates and you will be able to include custom text to any one of them. Forwarding a domain address to an alternative URL is as easy as only typing the web address and saving it. If you want to host any of your parked domain addresses, it takes simply a mouse click to do it and our system is going to do the rest - changing the name servers, creating a domain folder in your account, creating the required DNS records, etc. For easier management, you will be able to filter the domain addresses registered inside the account by their status - parked or hosted.
Parked Domains in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you get a semi-dedicated server plan through our company, you can register and park as many domain names as you want. In contrast to other companies, we are not going to charge you an additional fee for this feature. You are able to park a domain with only a couple of mouse clicks through the Domain Manager tool, which you could access via the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. In case you want to use a template, you will have a few different ones available and you'll be able to add custom text to any of them. The feature-rich Domain Manager enables you to set filters and see only the hosted or only the parked domain names inside your account. With the same instrument, you can also un-park a domain and host it within your account with only a click. Our system will change the name servers of the domain and will create its folder inside the File Manager section, and the needed DNS records for it, automatically.
