There are two services that you need for a working site - a domain and a website hosting plan for it. Any time you type the domain in your Internet browser, you see the content that is uploaded inside the hosting account, but if that Internet domain is not linked to such an account or to an email service, it is parked. Put simply, the domain name is registered and you are its owner, but it doesn't have any content of its own. As a substitute, it can open either a pre-made “Under Construction / For Sale” webpage from the registrar company, or it may be forwarded to any other URL of your choice. The advantage of parking a domain name is that you can keep it and ensure that no one else will take it. In the meantime, it will not take a slot for a hosted domain name inside your account. You can also park domains if you have a .com, for example, and you register domain addresses with other extensions such as .net, .org or country-code ones to forward them to the main site so as to protect a brand name.
Parked Domains in Hosting
When you have a hosting through our company, you are going to be able to park each of your domain names easily. The function is offered for the domain names registered with us, but not for the ones that are only hosted here and pointed from some other company, as a domain can be parked only through its registrar. Our Domain Manager tool will allow you to select from a number of templates and you will be able to include your own text to each of them. Redirecting a domain to an alternative URL is as easy as just typing the web address and saving it. If you decide to host any of your parked domains, it takes just a mouse click to do it and our system is going to do the rest - changing the name servers, creating a domain folder in your account, creating the necessary DNS records, etc. For much easier administration, you're going to be able to filter the domains registered within the account by their status - parked or hosted.
Parked Domains in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you acquire a semi-dedicated server plan through us, you are going to be able to register and park as many domains as you wish. As opposed to other providers, we are not going to charge you an additional fee for this feature. You can park a domain with just two mouse clicks using the Domain Manager tool, that you can access through the Hepsia web hosting CP. In case you want to use a template, you are going to have a few different ones to pick from and you will be able to add custom text to each of them. The feature-rich Domain Manager allows you to set filters to check out only the hosted or only the parked domain addresses within your account. Using the same tool, you can also un-park a domain and host it inside your account with a mouse click. Our system will modify the name servers of the domain and will create its folder inside the File Manager section, and the needed DNS records for it, automatically.
