    Unhappy Domain w/o host - Parking?

    Sorry if this is off-topic but im registering a domain with godaddy
    is it possible to register even if i dont have hosting yet?

    It says:
    "One or more of the nameservers you entered are either blank or incorrect. Please reenter your nameservers below. OR Park my names at GoDaddy"

    What does it mean to park my names at godaddy ?

    Thanks for the help, and sorry for all the question this is my first time, and im a little confused.

    1. you can register a domain even without having hosting.
    2. 'park' means temporarily with the registrar till you have a proper hosting account.

    Good luck with GoDaddy.

    Agreed. In fact most registrars park the domain for you automatically upon registering.

    That seems to be normal, once the name servers are ready, you can chose for normal registration.

    There are also many parking ppc sites, which you can make a little money by parking your domains with them. Sedo, parked and afternic are all reputable domain parking sites.

    All 'parking' a domain really means is that you point it to the same pages as an existing domain.

    If you park a domain with the registrar they point it to their generic parked domain page.

    If you park the domain with a web parking service such as SEDO then they point the domain to a page full of ads that is also displayed by other domains parked with them.

    If you park a domain on your own web hosting then it displays the same content as the main domain you set up on that hosting.

    If that is domain name with no original traffic. Leave default nameservers and go ahead. Web hosting account is not needed.
    After creating web site and uploading that you will change nameservers to the ones which your web hosting require

    If your domain is likely to receive some random type in traffic then you could try to park your domain with parked.com and try and make a little money.

    Use the nameservers
    ns1.parked.com
    ns2.parked.com


    You could also just leave the nameservers on the default settings that the registrar provides, it won't do any harm.
