There are two separate services that you need for a functioning site - a domain and a website hosting plan for it. If you type the domain name in your browser, you see the content that is uploaded in the website hosting account, but if that domain name is not linked to such an account or to an e-mail service, it's parked. To put it differently, the 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 some other URL of your choice. The main benefit of parking a domain name is that you can keep it and be sure that nobody else is going to take it. At the same time, it won't occupy a slot for a hosted domain within your account. You could also park domain names if you have a .com, for example, and you register domain addresses with other extensions like .net, .org or country-code ones to direct them to the main site so as to protect a brand name.
Parked Domains in Shared Web Hosting
If you have a Linux shared web hosting from us, you're going to be able to park all of your domains with ease. The function is offered for the domains registered through our company, and not for the ones which are only hosted here and pointed from some other company, since a domain name can be parked only through its registrar. Our Domain Manager instrument will permit you to choose from a variety of templates and you are going to be able to add custom text to any of them. Forwarding a domain to an alternative URL is as easy as just typing the Internet address and saving it. If you would like to host any of your parked domain names, 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, setting up the necessary DNS records, etc. For simpler management, you'll be able to filter the domains registered in the account by their status - parked or hosted.
Parked Domains in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting do not have a set limit for the number of domains you can park. This function is offered for domain names which are registered with us and not ones that are only hosted, due to the fact that this service is always provided only by the registrar. Parking any one of your domains is really easy and takes several mouse clicks with the feature-rich Domain Manager software instrument, which you’ll be able to access through your Hepsia website hosting CP. You are going to have a number of parking templates to choose from and you can add custom text to all of them - Under Construction, Parked Domain, For Sale, and the like. Un-parking a domain address is just as simple and what is more, our system is going to set up all the necessary records and it will set up a folder in the File Manager section automatically, so you'll not have to do anything manually.
