Parked Domains are domain names that point to the same website content as the domain on which it is ‘parked’. They also include one mailbox. No hosting fees apply.
- For example, you can park example.org on example.com. When browsing to example.org, the example.com website will be displayed, but the URL will remain example.org
- A Parked domain has the same IP address as the domain name on which it is parked.
- Although Parked domains do not have their own web content, they do include one mailbox. Additional mailboxes can be added at a fee of R9 per month each.
- Note the difference between Parked Domains and a Redirect: When browsing to a parked domain, the URL remains unchanged whereas in the case of a redirect the URL changes to that of the redirected webpage.
