A parked domain address is one that is taken, however it's not associated with any other service - web or email hosting. Basically, such a domain won't open any actual content when you type it in a web browser, but no one can take it as you've already registered it and you are its owner. The benefit of acquiring a domain and parking it afterwards is that you can keep it and not stress that someone else could possibly register it in the meantime if, for example, the site for it is not ready yet. You can create a short-term Under Construction page for a parked domain name while you're working on your website, or direct it to another web address - temporarily or permanently. The second option can be used if you have already registered domain.com, for instance, and you get domain.net and domain.org, so as to protect a brand name or a trademark. In cases like this, the .net and .org domains can be parked and forwarded to the .com as you do not need individual websites for them.

Parked Domains in Hosting

If you buy a hosting plan through our company, you'll be able to register as many domain names as you would like and park any one of them with only a few clicks via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Using our feature-rich Domain Manager tool, you can pick from various templates and add your own text to any one of them. If you prefer to forward a domain, all it requires is to type the URL, save it, and you will be all set. You can un-park a domain address and host it in your account just as easily and our system is going to do all the needed adjustments - update the domain name servers, set up DNS records for it, create a domain folder inside the File Manager area of your account, etcetera. In case you have a large number of domain addresses registered through our company, you will be able to use a filter and see only the parked or only the hosted ones for simpler management. Taking into consideration you can park a domain only with the registrar, you can use this function only for domains which are registered through us, but not through another provider.
