A parked domain address is one that's taken, but it is not linked to some other service - web or email hosting. In other words, this type of domain address won't open any real content in case you type it inside a web browser, but nobody can take it as you've already registered it and you are its owner. The best thing about obtaining a domain name and parking it afterwards is that you will be able to keep it and not stress that someone else may register it in the meantime if, for instance, the website for it is not ready yet. You could create a temporary Under Construction webpage for a parked domain address while you're working on the web site, or forward it to some other web address - temporarily or permanently. The second option can be used when you have already registered domain.com, for instance, and you acquire domain.net and domain.org, so that you can protect a brand name or a trademark. In this situation, the .net and .org domains can be parked and forwarded to the .com since you do not need different websites for them.

If you have a cloud hosting plans with our company, you are going to be able to park all of your domain names easily. The function is offered for the domain names registered with us, but not for the ones which are only hosted here and pointed from another company, because a domain can be parked only through its registrar.

Forwarding a domain address to another URL is as easy as only typing the Internet address and saving it. If you decide to host any of your parked domains, it takes simply 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 needed DNS records, etc. For simpler administration, you will be able to filter the domain names registered inside the account by their status - parked or hosted.
