There are 2 services that you need for a functioning web site - a domain name and a web hosting plan for it. Whenever you type the Internet domain in your browser, you see the content that is uploaded in the web hosting account, but if that domain name is not linked to such an account or to an e-mail service, it is parked. In other words, 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” page from the registrar company, or it could be directed to any other URL of your choice. The main advantage of parking a domain is that you can keep it and be sure that nobody else is going to take it. At the same time, it won't block a slot for a hosted Internet domain within your account. You can also park domain names if you have a .com, for instance, and you register domains with other extensions like .net, .org or country-code ones to direct them to the main website so as to protect a brand name.

Parked Domains in Cloud Hosting

If you have a Linux cloud packages through us, you are going to be able to park all of your domain names with ease. The function is offered for the domains registered with our company, and not for the ones that are only hosted here and pointed from some other company, as a domain address can be parked only through its registrar. Our Domain Manager tool will allow you to choose from a number of templates and you'll be able to include custom text to any of them. Forwarding a domain address to an alternative URL is as easy as only typing the web address and saving it. If you decide to host any of your parked domain addresses, it takes just a mouse click to do it and our system will do the rest - changing the name servers, creating a domain folder in your account, setting up the needed DNS records, etc. For simpler administration, you're going to be able to filter the domain addresses registered inside the account by their status - parked or hosted.
