There are two separate services you need for a working web site - a domain name and a web hosting plan for it. Any time you type the domain name in your web browser, you see the content that is uploaded inside the website hosting account, but if that domain is not linked to such an account or to an email service, it is parked. To put it differently, the domain is registered and you're its owner, but it lacks 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 may be forwarded to any other URL of your choice. The main advantage of parking a domain name is that you can keep it and ensure that no one else will take it. Meanwhile, it won't take a slot for a hosted domain within your account. You may also park domain names if you have a .com, for instance, and you register domains with other extensions like .net, .org or country-code ones to direct them to the main site so as to protect a brand name.
Parked Domains in Shared Website Hosting
If you purchase a shared website hosting plan through our company, you'll be able to register as many domains as you want and park them with a few mouse clicks through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Using our feature-rich Domain Manager instrument, you can pick from a number of templates and add your own text to any of them. If you'd like to forward a domain, all it requires is to type the URL, save it, and you will be all set. You'll be able to un-park a domain address and host it inside your account just as easily and our system will do all the required changes - update the domain name servers, set up DNS records for it, set up a domain folder inside the File Manager section of your account, etc. If you have a large number of domain names registered using our company, you will be able to use a filter to see just the parked or only the hosted ones for easier management. Taking into consideration that you can park a domain name only with the registrar, you can employ this function only for domains that are registered through us, but not through another company.
