A parked domain address is one that is taken, however it's not associated with any other service - web or email hosting. Basically, this type of domain address won't open any actual content if you type it in an Internet browser, but nobody else can take it as you've already registered it and you are its owner. The best thing about getting a domain name and parking it afterwards is that you will be able to keep it and not worry that someone else may register it meanwhile if, for instance, the website for it is not ready yet. You are able to create a short-term Under Construction webpage for a parked domain while you are working on your site, or direct it to another web address - temporarily or permanently. The latter option can be employed if 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 this case, the .net and .org domain names can be parked and directed to the .com since you don't need separate websites for them.
