A parked domain address is one that's taken, but it's not connected to some other service - web or e mail hosting. In other words, this type of domain name won't open any actual content in case you type it inside a browser, but no one else can take it as you've already registered it and you are its owner. The benefit of acquiring a domain name and parking it afterwards is the fact that you’re able to keep it and not worry that someone else may register it meanwhile if, for example, the website for it is not ready yet. You may create a short-term Under Construction website page for a parked domain address while you're working on the website, or direct it to some other web address - temporarily or permanently. The second option can be used if you have already registered domain.com, for example, and you obtain domain.net and domain.org, so as to protect a brand name or a trademark. In this situation, the .net and .org domain names can be parked and directed to the .com as you don't need individual sites for them.
