If you wish to register a domain to ensure that no one else is going to take it, however, you haven't created the site for it yet, you can park it. That is a service that registrar companies provide if a domain name is not linked to any web or e mail hosting service. This way, you'll be able to protect a brand name, for example, and you'll own the domain in question although it won't load any content. If you wish, you can choose some default template that the registrar provides, such as For Sale or Under Construction, alternatively you can forward the domain name to an alternative web address. The second option is very useful in case you own a few domains, but you want each and every one of them to open the same website. As an illustration, you may register domain.net and domain.org, then park them and forward them to domain.com. In this example, you're going to need hosting for the third domain only and the traffic to the other ones will be redirected to it.
Parked Domains in Hosting
If you have a hosting from our company, you will be able to park all of your domains with ease. The function is available for the domain addresses registered with us, and not for the ones that are only hosted here and directed from another company, as a domain name can be parked only through its registrar. Our Domain Manager tool will permit you to select from a variety of templates and you'll be able to include custom text to any of them. Redirecting a domain name 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 names, it takes simply a mouse 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 necessary DNS records, etc. For much easier management, you're going to be able to filter the domains registered inside the account by their status - parked or hosted.
