There are two separate services that you need for a working web site - a domain and a web hosting plan for it. When you type the Internet domain in your web browser, you see the content that is uploaded in the web hosting account, but if that Internet domain isn't linked to such an account or to an email service, it is parked. In other words, the domain address is registered and you're its owner, but it doesn't have any content of its own. As a substitute, 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 advantage of parking a domain address is that you can keep it and be sure that no one else will take it. Meanwhile, it will not occupy a slot for a hosted Internet domain within your account. You can also park domains if you have a .com, for instance, and you register domain addresses with other extensions such as .net, .org or country-code ones to forward them to the main web site so as to protect a brand name.

Parked Domains in Website Hosting

When you buy a website hosting plan from our company, you are going to be able to register as many domain names as you want and park them with a couple of mouse clicks using your Hepsia hosting CP. Using our feature-rich Domain Manager tool, you can choose from a number of templates and add your own text to any of them. If you prefer to forward a domain address, all it takes is to type the URL, save it, and you will be all set. You are able to un-park a domain address and host it within your account just as easily and our system will do all the needed adjustments - update the domain name servers, create DNS records for it, set up a domain folder in the File Manager area of your account, etcetera. In case you have numerous domain names registered using our company, you can use a filter and check out just the parked or only the hosted ones for easier management. Having in mind 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 company.
