There are two separate services you need for a working web site - a domain plus a web hosting plan for it. Whenever you type the domain address in your browser, you see the content that is uploaded within the website hosting account, but if that domain isn't linked to such an account or to an e-mail service, it is parked. To put it differently, the Internet domain is registered and you're its owner, but it does not have any content of its own. Rather, it can open either a pre-made “Under Construction / For Sale” page from the registrar company, or it may be forwarded to any other URL of your choice. The main benefit of parking a domain address is that you can keep it and make certain that no one else will take it. In the meantime, it's not going to occupy a slot for a hosted Internet domain in your account. You may also park domain names if you have a .com, for instance, and you register domain names with other extensions like .net, .org or country-code ones to forward them to the main website so as to protect a brand name.

Parked Domains in Cloud Hosting

When you have a Linux cloud hosting with us, you are going to be able to park each of your domains effortlessly. The function is offered for the domain names registered with our company, but not for the ones which are only hosted here and directed from another company, because a domain can be parked only through its registrar. Our Domain Manager tool will enable you to select from a variety of templates and you'll be able to include custom text to any one of them. Redirecting a domain address to a new URL is as easy as just typing the web address and saving it. If you want to host any of your parked domain addresses, it takes just 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 easier management, you're going to be able to filter the domains registered within the account by their status - parked or hosted.
