A parked domain is one that is taken, yet it is not connected to some other service - web or email hosting. Essentially, this type of domain address won't load any actual content when you type it in an Internet browser, but no one else can take it as you have already registered it and you are its owner. The main advantage of acquiring 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 meanwhile if, for example, the site for it is not ready yet. You may set a temporary Under Construction website page for a parked domain address while you're working on the website, or forward 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, so that you can protect a brand name or a trademark. In such a case, the .net and .org domains can be parked and forwarded to the .com because you don't need different websites for them.
