    Question hosting vs parking?

    I am confused with the terms: domain hosting and parked domains.

    Coz I sign up for one web host, which accept only parked domains. Let's say can I use www.afreedboy.com to go to that hosting?

    *sigh* It's called an online dictionary. Use it.

    A parked domain is used to point to your website, but it is different from the main domain name that you would choose. The point would be something like this: you purchase www.afreedboy.com and then you also purchase www.afreedboy.net and www.afreedboy.biz . They all point to the same thing, but you're catching the idiots that punch in the wrong domain.

    I fully agree with Waldo2k and Ober,

    Maybe there should be a better way of keeping these kind of threads of the board then just the sticky, because it seems to me that nobody reads the sticky´s at the top of every board before posting something....

    Maybe something like a thing that when a registered user with less then 100 post is first redirected to the sticky of the board when he tries to make a new thread, once you have reached 100 posts by that time they will know everything that is in the sticky...(this should also apply to guests )
