WHAT IS A DOMAIN NAME?
A domain name is a name like "yourname.com"
which, for most people, is the address of a web site, such as "www.yourname.com".
Usually, if you want to set up your own
web site, the first step is to pay a small annual fee to register a domain name. The domain name can then be
"pointed" at a web server (a computer connected to the World
Wide Web) which contains the web pages that you want in your web site. Whenever visitors type that web address into their
browser's address bar, they will be taken to your web site. For example, if you type
"registryweb.com" into your browser's address bar, you'll be
taken to the Home Page of this web site.
WHAT IS DOMAIN NAME PARKING?
As we mentioned above, registering a domain name is the only the first step in creating
your web site. If you are starting a new web site, you probably don't have
anywhere to point the domain name yet.
Domain Name Parking simply means your domain
name is reserved for you, without putting it live on the Internet. The
domain name becomes yours, so it's protected and nobody else can register
it. This gives you time to choose a web host and create and
upload your web pages. You can put up a temporary Home Page if you wish
while you complete these other steps.
Other reasons to park domain names include:
- You want to register many domain names to reserve them for future
- You can't decide which domain name you want to use. For
example, if 3 domain names were available, you could register all 3
to reserve them until you decide.
- You want to reserve all possible variations of a particular domain
name, including plurals, such as yourname.com, your-name.com,
- You want to register domain names in many countries, such as
yourname.com, yourname.us, yourname.co.uk, yourname.com.au etc.
register and park your domain names with us for as long as you like until you are ready to
use the names or publish your web site.
