What exactly are parked domain names? When could they come in real handy? How can you park a domain?
There are 2 services you need for a functioning website - a domain plus a hosting plan for it. If you type the domain address in your browser, you see the content that’s uploaded inside the web hosting account, but if that domain is not linked to such an account or to an e-mail service, it is parked. Put simply, the domain name is registered and you're 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 main advantage of parking a domain name is that you can keep it and make sure that no one else is going to take it. At the same time, it will not occupy a slot for a hosted Internet domain in your account. In addition, you can 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 site in order to protect a brand name.
Parked Domains in Website Hosting
With each and every website hosting
package we offer you will be able to park as many domains as you would like and unlike other companies, we don't have any fees for that. Of course, this can be done exclusively for domains that are registered through us as parking a domain is possible only with the registrar, and not through the host unless you have both services with just one company. We have a feature-rich Domain Manager tool where you can quickly park and un-park domain names, choose one of the templates we provide and add custom text to it, or forward a domain name to a URL of your choice. If you host a parked domain, our system will modify its name servers and set up a folder in the File Manager automatically. Also you can set filters and see only the parked or only the hosted domain names, that will enable you to control them fast and easy.
Parked Domains in Semi-dedicated Servers
Through our semi-dedicated server
you are going to be able to park an unrestricted amount of the domain names that you have registered through our company at no extra cost. We provide several parking templates to select from with the option to upload your own text to any of them. If you want to forward your domain, it takes simply a few clicks to do it. We have a feature-rich Domain Manager tool that you can access from your Hepsia hosting CP and it will permit you to park and un-park domains easily or filter all registered domains by their status and see only the parked or only the hosted ones. Un-parking a domain takes simply a click and you'll not have to do anything manually after that, because our system is going to automatically set up all the necessary records, change the domain name servers and create a domain folder within the File Manager section.
