There are two services you need for a working website - a domain name plus a hosting plan for it. Each time you type the domain name in your browser, you see the content that’s uploaded in the hosting account, but if that domain name is not linked to such an account or to an email service, it is parked. In other words, the domain address 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” webpage from the registrar company, or it can be directed to some other URL of your choice. The main benefit of parking a domain is that you can keep it and make certain that no one else is going to take it. Meanwhile, it will not occupy a slot for a hosted domain within your account. You may 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 direct them to the main site in order to protect a brand name.

Parked Domains in Cloud Hosting

With each and every cloud hosting plan we offer you’re able to park as many domain names as you wish and unlike other companies, we don't have any service fees for that. However, you can do this exclusively for domain names that are registered through our company as parking a domain is possible only through the registrar, but not through the host unless you have both services with just one company. We have a feature-rich Domain Manager tool where you can easily park and un-park domain names, pick one of the templates we offer and add custom text to it, or direct a domain to a URL of your choice. If you host a parked domain, our system will change its name servers and set up a folder in the File Manager automatically. Also you can set filters to check out only the parked or only the hosted domain names, that will enable you to manage them really easy.
