Hey all, new to DH.
I have a question about the DH domain parking and I have looked everywhere for an answer if anyone could help it would be greatly appreciated.
I currently have 1 .ca domain registered with DH. “mydomain.ca” I’ll call it. That’s all fine, and I know that if I want to add parked domains I need to register them as well.
My question is… why does dreamhosters allow me to keep adding tones of "parked’ domains that I haven’t even registered? I can add "mydomain2.ca’ “mydomain3.ca” “mydomain4.ca” etc. and not pay anything?
The closest answer I have found to explain this is that they arent really parked, they’re just on that list as a bookmark or maybe a reminder if you do want to eventually register it. But the thing I’m confused about is, if I don’t actually own the domain and it’s not even parked, how am I able to add options like redirection paths etc. ?
For example, If i wanted “mydomain2.ca” to redirect to … microsoft.com… it lets me do that. I havn’t even registered mydomain2.ca but it’s letting me redirect it anywhere? It gives me all that control for free? or will it just simply not redirect until I register?
Hopefully that makes sense haha any help would be much appreciated.
