There are 2 services that you’ll need for a functioning website - a domain name and a website hosting plan for it. If you type the domain in your browser, you see the content that is uploaded in the web hosting account, but if that domain name isn't linked to such an account or to an e-mail service, it's parked. Put simply, the domain is registered and you're its owner, but it lacks content of its own. Instead, it can open either a pre-made “Under Construction / For Sale” webpage from the registrar company, or it may be forwarded to any other URL of your choice. The main advantage of parking a domain is that you can keep it and ensure that no one else is going to take it. In the meantime, it won't occupy a slot for a hosted Internet domain within your account. You may also park domains if you have a .com, for example, and you register domains with other extensions such as .net, .org or country-code ones to direct them to the main site so as to protect a brand name.
Parked Domains in Shared Hosting
With each and every shared hosting plan that we offer you are able to park as many domains as you would like and unlike other companies, we do not have any fees for that. However, this can be done only for domain addresses which are registered through our company because parking a domain is possible only through the registrar, but not through the host unless you have both services with just one company. We have got a feature-rich Domain Manager tool where you can quickly park and un-park domain names, select one of the templates that we offer and add custom text to it, or forward a domain name to a URL of your preference. If you host a parked domain, our system will modify its name servers and create a folder in the File Manager automatically. Also you can set filters and see only the parked or only the hosted domain names, that will permit you to manage them quick and simple.
Parked Domains in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you buy a semi-dedicated server plan through our company, you are going to be able to register and park as many domain addresses as you would like. As opposed to other companies, we are not going to charge you an additional fee for this feature. You can park a domain with only two mouse clicks using the Domain Manager instrument, that you can access through the Hepsia web hosting CP. In case you choose to use a template, you will have a few different ones to choose from and you will be able to add custom text to each of them. The feature-rich Domain Manager allows you to set filters to see only the hosted or only the parked domains in your account. Through the same tool, you can also un-park a domain and host it in your account with a mouse click. Our system will change the name servers of the domain address and will create its folder inside the File Manager section, and the required DNS records for it, automatically.
