There are 2 services you need for a working website - a domain name and a web hosting plan for it. When you type the Internet domain in your Internet browser, you see the content that’s uploaded in the web hosting account, but if that Internet domain isn't linked to such an account or to an e-mail service, it's parked. Put simply, the domain address is registered and you are its owner, but it doesn't have any content of its own. Instead, it can open either a pre-made “Under Construction / For Sale” webpage from the registrar company, or it can be directed to some other URL of your choice. The main advantage of parking a domain is that you can keep it and make sure that nobody else is going to take it. At the same time, it will not block a slot for a hosted Internet domain inside your account. You may also park domain names if you have a .com, for example, and you register domain addresses with other extensions like .net, .org or country-code ones to forward them to the main website as a way to protect a brand name.
Parked Domains in Cloud Website Hosting
You're going to be able to park as many domain names as you wish with each of the cloud website hosting plans that we offer. However, this feature is provided only for domain addresses registered with us since the service is always provided only by the registrar. As opposed to the majority of service providers, we don't charge anything extra for parking a domain name and the process takes only a couple of clicks in your Hepsia CP. We also have a number of parking templates to select from where you can include custom text. If you choose to host a parked domain name in the future, adding it to your account will take only a click. Everything necessary for your website to start showing up, including setting up a domain folder and setting up DNS records will be done automatically by our system. Our feature-rich Domain Manager tool will enable you to view a full list of the domains that you've registered through us and you can set a filter to see just the parked or only the hosted ones.
Parked Domains in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you buy a semi-dedicated server plan through us, you will be able to register and park as many domains as you wish. As opposed to other providers, we will not charge you an additional fee for this feature. You'll be able to park a domain with just two mouse clicks through the Domain Manager tool, which you could access through the Hepsia hosting CP. In case you choose to use a template, you will have a few different ones to pick from and you'll be able to add custom text to any of them. The feature-rich Domain Manager allows you to set filters to see only the hosted or only the parked domain names in your account. With the same tool, you can also un-park a domain and host it inside your account with only a mouse click. Our system will modify the name servers of the domain address and will create its folder in the File Manager section, and the required DNS records for it, automatically.
