If you want to register a domain name to ensure that no one else is going to take it, however, you haven't built the web site for it yet, you may park it. This is a service that registrar companies provide whenever a domain isn't connected to any web or e-mail hosting service. That way, you can protect a brand name, for instance, and you will own the domain in question although it will not open any content. If you'd like, you can select some standard template that the registrar offers, such as For Sale or Under Construction, or you can direct the domain to an alternative web address. Your second option is very helpful if you own a few domain names, but you want every one of them to open the same website. For example, you could register domain.net and domain.org, then park them and direct them to domain.com. In this example, you'll need hosting for the third domain name only and the traffic to the other ones is going to be redirected to it.
Parked Domains in Website Hosting
If you have a Linux website hosting packages with our company, you'll be able to park all of your domains with ease. The function is offered for the domain names registered with us, but not for the ones that are only hosted here and pointed from another company, because a domain can be parked only through its registrar. Our Domain Manager instrument will enable you to select from a variety of templates and you will be able to include your own text to any one of them. Forwarding a domain to a different URL is as easy as just typing the Internet address and saving it. If you want to host any of your parked domain addresses, it takes just a mouse click to do it and our system is going to do the rest - changing the name servers, setting up a domain folder in your account, creating the necessary DNS records, etc. For simpler control, you're going to be able to filter the domain names registered in the account by their status - parked or hosted.
