What's the difference between domain hosting and domain parking?
  • Domain hosting means providing space on the hosting company's servers, where your website and other files can reside. At DreamHost, domain hosting also means providing email accounts, site statistics, tech support, pre-written CGI scripts, and much more!

  • Domain "parking" provides a temporary, one-page placeholder for your domain. Visitors to www.yourdomain.com will see a generic message --- usually "coming soon" or "under construction." Domain parking does not include space for your website on the host company's server; you cannot put a website up at a parked domain. Parked domains have no email accounts, and cannot send or receive email.
