What exactly are parked domain names? When could they come in real handy? How could you park a domain?
There are 2 services that you need for a functioning website - a domain and a web hosting plan for it. Each time you type the Internet domain in your browser, you see the content that is uploaded in the website hosting account, but if that domain name isn't linked to such an account or to an email service, it's parked. To put it differently, the Internet domain is registered and you're its owner, but it does not have any content of its own. Rather, it can open either a pre-made “Under Construction / For Sale” page from the registrar company, or it may be directed to some other URL of your choice. The advantage of parking a domain name is that you can keep it and make sure that no one else is going to take it. At the same time, it will not take a slot for a hosted domain address inside your account. In addition, you can 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 in order to protect a brand name.
Parked Domains in Shared Hosting
If you buy a shared hosting
plan from us, you are going to be able to register as many domain names as you wish and park any of them with a couple of mouse clicks using your Hepsia hosting CP. Through our feature-rich Domain Manager instrument, you can choose from a number of templates and add your own text to any of them. If you prefer to forward a domain, all it takes is to type the URL, save it, and you'll be all set. You could un-park a domain address and host it inside your account just as easily and our system is going to do all the required changes - update the domain name servers, create DNS records for it, set up a domain folder inside the File Manager area of your account, etc. Provided you have a large number of domain addresses registered using our company, you can use a filter to check out just the parked or only the hosted ones for simpler administration. Taking into consideration that you could park a domain only with the registrar, you can employ this feature only for domains which are registered through us, but not through another provider.

Un-parking a domain name takes only a click and you will not have to do anything manually after that, because our system will automatically set up all the needed records, change the domain name servers and set up a domain folder within the File Manager section.
