There are two services you need for a working site - a domain plus a hosting plan for it. When you type the domain name in your web browser, you see the content that’s uploaded within the web hosting account, but if that domain address is not linked to such an account or to an e-mail service, it's parked. To put it differently, the domain address is registered and you're its owner, but it does not 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 any other URL of your choice. The advantage of parking a domain address is that you can keep it and make certain that no one else is going to take it. At the same time, it won't take a slot for a hosted domain name within your account. You can also park domain names if you have a .com, for example, and you register domain addresses with other extensions such as .net, .org or country-code ones to direct them to the main website as a way to protect a brand name.
Parked Domains in Shared Hosting
If you have a Linux shared hosting through our company, you'll be able to park any of your domain names effortlessly. The function is available for the domain names registered through our company, but not for the ones which are only hosted here and directed from some other company, as a domain name can be parked only through its registrar. Our Domain Manager tool will permit you to pick from a variety of templates and you will be able to include custom text to any of them. Redirecting a domain name to a different URL is as easy as simply typing the web 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 is going to do the rest - changing the name servers, setting up a domain folder in your account, creating the needed DNS records, etc. For much easier control, you'll be able to filter the domain addresses registered in the account by their status - parked or hosted.
Parked Domains in Semi-dedicated Servers
With each and every semi-dedicated server that we provide you are going to have the ability to park as many domain names that are registered through us as you wish. Given that only the registrar company can provide a parking option, you cannot park domains which are only hosted on our state-of-the-art cloud hosting platform. Using the Domain Manager section of your Hepsia hosting CP you'll be able to park and un-park domains with as little as a couple of clicks and filter all domains that you've got by their status, for easier control. We offer a number of templates which you can use and if you would like, you can also add some custom text to each of them. If you decide to un-park a domain and host it within your account, you will not have to do anything manually - our system is going to create a domain folder inside the File Manager section and will create all of the necessary DNS records so that the domain address works properly and starts opening the content which you upload for it on our servers.
