A parked Internet domain is one which is taken, but it is not linked to another service - web or e mail hosting. Essentially, this kind of domain name will not open any real content if you type it inside a web browser, but no one else can take it as you have already registered it and you are its owner. The main advantage of getting a domain name and parking it afterwards is the fact that you are able to keep it and not worry that someone else could possibly register it meanwhile if, for example, the site for it is not ready yet. You are able to create a temporary Under Construction webpage for a parked domain address while you're working on the site, or forward 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 acquire domain.net and domain.org, so as to protect a brand name or a trademark. In this case, the .net and .org domain addresses can be parked and directed to the .com because you do not need separate sites for them.
