Proverbs 31:30 – Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the LORD, she shall be praised.

A parked domain may also be alias, an extra domain that leads to a main domains web site. Parked domains are additional domains hosted in your account, displaying the same website as your main domain, and sharing the same web statistics. The parks pages for these domains can contain advertisements, but also include a contact link for visitors to submit offers on large numbers of domain names.

Many web hosts show the parked pages by default when a domain has been registered, but a website has yet to be published by the owner. A parked page is telling you that the domain you are visiting is registered to someone, but does not have a website yet. When visitors type the domain name they are visiting, which has been parked in this manner, they are shown a fake webpage. Parking usually means having the domain name pointed at a placeholder web page, telling visitors the domain has been taken.

If you are parking a domain for an extended period, you might want to carefully examine the contents of the placeholder web page used by your registrar for your domain. If you decide to take advantage of the parking service for an extended period of time, your domain will end up being associated with advertising-heavy content.

Psalms 119:37 – Turn away mine eyes from beholding vanity; and quicken thou me in thy way.

Then, the site is taken down, and the domain is unavailable until the domain is expired. A domain used as a website, which is allowed to expire, will still retain a majority of the previous inbound links.

You can either set this up, keep the domain that is being visited as is, or redirect it to an existing site instead. The owner of a domain may also decide to redirect a domain to another site they registered, whether that is by URL redirection, domain cloaking, or by forwarding it as an alias to the primary domain, though if that is done by the final registrant, then the domain is in active use, not being parked.

You must also have the main domain linked to a hosting site or service. Your domain will be taken care of until you can get hosting services and create a site. The process for securing your domain works pretty much the same no matter what hosting service or registrar you are using.

1 Samuel 16:7 – But the LORD said unto Samuel, Look not on his countenance, or on the height of his stature; because I have refused him: for the LORD seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the LORD looketh on the heart.

You can check whether the domain is available via the registrar you prefer. You can easily check whether a domain is available or reserved through the Whois search, or search your favorite domain registrar. You should have your domain registered (that you wish to park) already, and it pointed to your DNS server. Instead of pointing to any particular server, the hosted domain will point either nowhere (and you will see an error when visiting) or serve up a generic park page from your DNS registrars servers or from third-party services.

The term domain parking can also refer to the advertising practice, more specifically called parking domain monetization, used mostly by domain name registrars and Internet advertising publishers to monetize traffic from types visiting parked, underdeveloped, or unused domain names.

1 Timothy 4:8 – For bodily exercise profiteth little: but godliness is profitable unto all things, having promise of the life that now is, and of that which is to come.

Domain parking, a.k.a. Cash parking, is a leveraging of advertisements within a parked web domain in order to bring in revenue when the domain is otherwise idle. Now that we have discussed how domain parking can be used in conjunction with domain investment, you are probably wondering how parking in particular can be leveraged to make money for you. Before you begin throwing money around, it is important to understand how domain parking connects with the world of domain investing.

All three types of domains can potentially earn you money through parking. There are services that allow you to park a domain for free, in return for a percentage of any revenue generated from ads placed on the park page. If a domain owner does not have any content or services they are willing to direct traffic towards, they may want to use parking services in order to monetize their users traffic.

It is common to use a parking for “Coming Soon” or “In Development” pages, in order to keep a domain alive as a site is developed. Another way parking domains works is by pointing to a simple landing page, which could be used to inform visitors the site is coming, that the domain is up for sale, or display ads to generate revenue.

Jeremiah 4:30 – And when thou art spoiled, what wilt thou do? Though thou clothest thyself with crimson, though thou deckest thee with ornaments of gold, though thou rentest thy face with painting, in vain shalt thou make thyself fair; thy lovers will despise thee, they will seek thy life.

A web domain with parking functions merely as a crossroads, with people able to either click the associated advertising links (and earn money for the domain holder) or bounce from the page. For most, getting a domain is simply the precursor to starting a site, and so a domain is rarely parked for very long (usually until you register a web hosting service and point your domain there). For newbie web developers and Internet entrepreneurs, choosing a domain is an easy task, often left until late in the process. Since getting a domain is one of many steps to creating a site, most people have no website when they register their domain.

Ecclesiastes 2:11 – Then I looked on all the works that my hands had wrought, and on the labour that I had laboured to do: and, behold, all was vanity and vexation of spirit, and there was no profit under the sun.

Unless you need the park domain for your own business, such as if you have already established a brand, it is usually best to steer clear of the park domains and think up new names. Park domains, or domains that you plan on using later, makes sense, as when you actually get hosting set up, you can plug it in quickly and begin building out your site using your domain name — this also keeps someone from registering it in the meantime, and keeps your name secure. You can then use your desired domains as the primary address for your hosted site, and park the others in order to avoid cybersquatting.
