There are 2 services you'll need for a functioning website - a domain name and a web hosting plan for it. Each time you type the domain name in your Internet browser, you see the content that is uploaded in the website hosting account, but if that domain name is not 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” Internet page from the registrar company, or it can be forwarded to some other URL of your choice. The advantage of parking a domain is that you can keep it and be sure that nobody else will take it. At the same time, it's not going to block a slot for a hosted domain name inside your account. In addition, you can park domain names if you have a .com, for instance, and you register domain addresses with other extensions like .net, .org or country-code ones to forward them to the main web site in order to protect a brand name.
Parked Domains in Website Hosting
If you have a website hosting from our company, you're going to be able to park any of your domains with ease. The function is available for the domain addresses registered with us, but not for the ones that are only hosted here and pointed from another company, since a domain can be parked only through its registrar. Our Domain Manager tool will allow you to choose from a number of different templates and you will be able to add your own text to each of them. Forwarding a domain name to a new URL is as easy as only typing the Internet address and saving it. If you decide to host any of your parked domain addresses, it takes simply a mouse click to do it and our system will do the rest - changing the name servers, creating a domain folder in your account, setting up the needed DNS records, etc. For much easier control, you are going to be able to filter the domains registered in the account by their status - parked or hosted.
Parked Domains in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated servers don't have a restriction for the number of domain addresses that you could park. This function is offered for domains that are registered through our company and not ones that are only hosted, because the service is always provided only by the registrar. Parking any one of your domains is really simple and takes a few mouse clicks with the feature-rich Domain Manager software tool, which you are able to access through your Hepsia hosting CP. You will have a number of parking templates to pick from and you can add custom text to all of them - Under Construction, Parked Domain, For Sale, and the like. Un-parking a domain name is just as easy and what is more, our system is going to set up all the required records and it'll create a folder within the File Manager section automatically, so you will not need to do anything manually.
