There are 2 services that you’ll need for a functioning site - a domain and a website hosting plan for it. Each time you type the domain address in your Internet browser, you see the content that is uploaded within the hosting account, but if that domain is not linked to such an account or to an email service, it's parked. In other words, the domain name is registered and you are its owner, but it lacks content of its own. As a substitute, it can open either a pre-made “Under Construction / For Sale” page from the registrar company, or it can be forwarded to some other URL of your choice. The advantage of parking a domain name is that you can keep it and ensure that no one else is going to take it. Meanwhile, it won't block a slot for a hosted domain name in your account. You may also park domain names if you have a .com, for example, and you register domain addresses with other extensions like .net, .org or country-code ones to forward them to the main website in order to protect a brand name.
Parked Domains in Cloud Web Hosting
If you have a Linux cloud web hosting from our company, you're going to be able to park each of your domain names with ease. The function is available for the domains registered with us, and not for the ones that are only hosted here and pointed from another company, since a domain name can be parked only through its registrar. Our Domain Manager instrument will enable you to pick from a number of different templates and you'll be able to include custom text to each of them. Forwarding a domain address to a new URL is as easy as only typing the Internet address and saving it. If you want to host any of your parked domain addresses, it takes only a click to do it and our system will do the rest - changing the name servers, setting up a domain folder in your account, creating the required DNS records, etc. For much easier control, you'll be able to filter the domain addresses registered inside the account by their status - parked or hosted.
