What is domain floating?

Your domain name can be with status ‘floating’ in your account. This means that you neigther have it hosted nor parked. Such domain names are usually those, which you have just registered or transferred. Another example is a domain, which you have removed from the ‘Hosted Domains’ section. You can host a floating domain and create a website and e-mail addresses with it or you can park it for future online activities. Note that you cannot use such domains unless you choose one of the two options.
The domains with floating status are marked with icon in the “Type” column
