If you want to register a domain name to make certain that nobody else is going to take it, but you have not created the web site for it yet, you may park it. It's a service that registrar companies offer if a domain address isn't linked to any web or e mail hosting service. In this way, you can protect a brand name, for instance, and you will own the domain in question even though it won't load any content. If you want, you can pick some default template that the registrar offers, like For Sale or Under Construction, alternatively you can direct the domain name to a different web address. Your second option is very helpful in case you own a few domains, but you want each and every one of them to open the same site. As an illustration, you could register domain.net and domain.org, then park them and forward them to domain.com. In this example, you'll need hosting for the third domain only and the traffic to the other ones is going to be redirected to it.

Forwarding 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 domain addresses, it takes simply a mouse click to do it and our system will 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 within the account by their status - parked or hosted.
