If you wish to register a domain to make sure that no one else is going to take it, but you have not built the web site for it yet, you could park it. That is a feature that registrar companies offer whenever a domain name isn't linked to any web or e-mail hosting service. By doing this, you'll be able to protect a brand name, for instance, and you'll own the domain in question although it won't open any content. If you wish, you can pick some standard template that the registrar offers, such as For Sale or Under Construction, you can also direct the domain name to an alternative web address. Your second option is very useful in case you own a few domain names, but you want every one of them to open the same site. As an illustration, you may register domain.net and domain.org, then park them and forward them to domain.com. In this example, you're going to need hosting for the third domain name only and the traffic to the other ones will be redirected to it.

Parked Domains in Cloud Hosting

When you have a cloud hosting through our company, you are going to be able to park all of your domains easily. The feature is offered for the domains registered with our company, and not for the ones which are only hosted here and pointed from another company, since a domain address can be parked only through its registrar. Our Domain Manager instrument will permit you to choose from a variety of templates and you'll be able to add your own text to any of them. Redirecting a domain address to another URL is as easy as simply typing the Internet address and saving it. If you decide to host any of your parked domain names, it takes just a click to do it and our system is going to do the rest - changing the name servers, creating a domain folder in your account, setting up the necessary DNS records, etc. For simpler administration, you will be able to filter the domain addresses registered in the account by their status - parked or hosted.
