Park a domain

Park a domain registered with TopologyHost

Parking your domain when it’s registered with TopologyHost is easy. Your domain’s nameservers are likely already set to Default or Standard in your account if you’re registered with us, but if not, you’ll need to set them. Once your nameservers are set to default/standard, you’ll need to then change the A record in your account.

  • Log in to your TopologyHost account.
  • Next to Domains, click Manage.

How you now park your domain will depend on the view of your account:
