Don't fear when Zel is near…

Have a professional looking parked domain site

Intro

Parked Domain

Well I was actually looking around for WordPress Themes for my new website, then Ian Stewart' Launchpad gave me a great idea for making a html template for websites that is not quite ready yet.

When you’re getting ready to launch your website, most of the hosting companies and/or registars offers a parked domain, that can turn your site into an advertising campaign for them. I am also not a fan of the "Under Construction" pages.

Now you can park your domain in style!

You can download this template here. The MD5 Sum for this file is e859db95e43656b1ffc8bd909d87dec8

The fileparkeddomain.zip contains:

  • A Style Sheet: style.css
  • Index Page: index.html
  • RSS Feed File: mysite.rss
  • Readme File: readme.txt
  • Images (Sub-Folder)
    • RSS graphic: rss-icon.png
    • Footer graphic: bar.gif
  • Screenshot: parkeddomain.jpg

I’ve implemented it on my new Web site. Preview it here.
