A parked Internet domain is one that is taken, however it's not associated with any other service - web or e mail hosting. Essentially, this type of domain name won't open any real 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 best thing about getting a domain name and parking it afterwards is the fact that you’re able to keep it and not stress that someone else might register it meanwhile if, for example, the website for it is not ready yet. You are able to create a short-term Under Construction website page for a parked domain address while you are working on your web site, or direct it to another web address - temporarily or permanently. The second option can be employed if you have already registered domain.com, for instance, and you get domain.net and domain.org, so as to protect a brand name or a trademark. In cases like this, the .net and .org domains can be parked and forwarded to the .com since you do not need different sites for them.
