Parked Domain


What is a Domain Name?

Domain name is a name like "thewebsiteabc.com" i.e. it's the address of a website. Normally, if someone wishes to set up a website, he/she will need to pay a small annual fee to register a domain name. The domain name can then be "pointed" to a website containing the web pages that the person wants to set up. Whenever visitors type that web address into their browser, they will be brought to the website. For example, if you to type "thewebsiteabc.com" into your browser, you will be brought to the main page of this website.

When Do You Park a Domain Name?

Very often, when people "buy" a domain name, they are just making a website they don’t have a website pointing to that particular domain name anywhere. 

Domain name registrars, the companies through which we register a domain, it allows the domain to point to a dummy web page. If a visitor types the address of a domain that has been parked, they will be able to see placeholder web pages in the web browsers. The content of the dummy page that visitor is seeing depends upon the company through which it has been registered for e.g., at the time you will see the ad from the registrar.

There are many reasons as to why someone would like to park their domain. For example, one would be buying multiple domain names because he/she thinks that they might want to reserve them for future use or because they can’t decide between the different permutations of names and want to take precautions against those names being stolen

Why You May Not Want to Use Your Registrar's Domain Name Parking Services

Domain name is just a precursor to starting a website, and as such, the domain name is rarely parked for long when it's parked for such a short period, that temporary dummy web page on your parked domain doesn't really matter since it will not be associated with your domain for long.
