If you want to register a domain to make sure that no one else is going to take it, but you have not developed the web site for it yet, you can park it. This is a feature that registrar companies offer whenever a domain is not connected to any web or e mail hosting service. That way, you can protect a brand name, for example, and you'll own the domain name in question even though it won't load any content. If you wish, you can pick some default template that the registrar offers, such as For Sale or Under Construction, you can also direct the domain name to another web address. The second option is extremely helpful in case you own a number of domains, but you want all of them to open the same site. As an example, 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 address only and the traffic to the other ones is going to be redirected to it.

If you have a cloud website hosting services through our company, you are going to be able to park all of your domains with ease. The function is available for the domains registered through our company, and not for the ones which are only hosted here and directed from another company, because a domain address can be parked only through its registrar. Our Domain Manager tool will permit you to pick from a number of different templates and you're going to be able to include custom text to any of them. Forwarding a domain name to another URL is as easy as only typing the web address and saving it. If you want to host any of your parked domain addresses, it takes just a click to do it and our system will do the rest - changing the name servers, setting up a domain folder in your account, setting up the needed DNS records, etc. For easier control, you'll be able to filter the domains registered in the account by their status - parked or hosted.
