There are 2 services you need for a functioning website - a domain plus a hosting plan for it. If you type the domain in your Internet browser, you see the content that is uploaded within the website hosting account, but if that Internet 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 are its owner, but it does not have any content of its own. Rather, it can open either a pre-made “Under Construction / For Sale” Internet page from the registrar company, or it could be forwarded to some other URL of your choice. The main benefit of parking a domain address is that you can keep it and make sure that nobody else is going to take it. Meanwhile, it won't take a slot for a hosted domain inside your account. You can also park domain names 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 website as a way to protect a brand name.
Parked Domains in Shared Hosting
When you get a shared hosting plan from our company, you'll be able to register as many domain names as you would like and park any of them with only a couple of mouse clicks through your Hepsia hosting CP. Using our feature-rich Domain Manager instrument, you can pick from several templates and add your own text to any one of them. If you want to forward a domain name, all it requires is to type the URL, save it, and you'll be all set. You'll be able to un-park a domain address and host it within your account just as easily and our system is going to do all the needed adjustments - update the domain address servers, set up DNS records for it, create a domain folder in the File Manager area of your account, etc. Provided you have a large number of domain addresses registered through our company, you can use a filter to check out just the parked or only the hosted ones for easier management. Having in mind you could park a domain name only with its registrar, you can employ this feature only for domains that are registered through us, but not through another company.
