A parked domain is one that is taken, however it's not connected to another service - web or e mail hosting. To put it differently, this kind of domain name will not load any actual content when you type it within a web browser, but no one can take it as you have already registered it and you are its owner. The advantage of obtaining a domain name and parking it afterwards is that you’re able to keep it and not worry that somebody else could possibly register it in the meantime if, for example, the site for it is not ready yet. You are able to set a temporary Under Construction webpage for a parked Internet domain while you are working on the website, or direct it to another web address - temporarily or permanently. The second option can be employed when you have already registered domain.com, for example, and you get domain.net and domain.org, in order to protect a brand name or a trademark. In cases like this, the .net and .org domain addresses can be parked and directed to the .com as you do not need separate websites for them.
