There are two services that you’ll need for a working web site - a domain name and a web hosting plan for it. If you type the Internet domain in your web browser, you see the content that is uploaded in the web hosting account, but if that domain name is not linked to such an account or to an email service, it is parked. Put simply, the domain is registered and you are its owner, but it lacks content of its own. As a substitute, it can open either a pre-made “Under Construction / For Sale” Internet page from the registrar company, or it may be forwarded to some other URL of your choice. The benefit of parking a domain name is that you can keep it and make certain that no one else will take it. Meanwhile, it won't occupy a slot for a hosted domain address in your account. In addition, you can park domains if you have a .com, for example, and you register domain addresses with other extensions like .net, .org or country-code ones to forward them to the main website as a way to protect a brand name.
