Domain parking is a cheap way to secure a domain for later development, redirection of web traffic, or re-sale of the domain name. We offer domain parking for free with domain registration, as there is no cost involved.
A parked domain includes one simple page. If the domain name is going to be used for development, the page normally shows that it is under construction or coming soon. Domain parking can be renewed annually, and there is no deadline as to when a website is need to be developed for the domain name.
A web hosting service needs to be bought from any web hosting provider, it does not have to be with us. The right web hosting service will provide enough web space (storage space) for your website and any design scripts or services you require. Once you have found the right web hosting provider to host your website your domain name will no longer be parked.
If you already have a website, another use of domain parking is to secure addresses similar to your main website and redirect traffic there. For example, www.mycompany.ie redirects traffic to the main website, www.mycompany.com. The first domain is parked. The parked domain does not have to be hosted by the same web hosting provider as the main website.
Parking a New Domain Name
To park a new domain name, all you need to do is go to the domain registration page and register a new domain name that will automatically be parked unless you order it with a hosting package or use it as a add-on domain in one of your current hosting packages.
