There are 2 services that you’ll need for a working web site - a domain and a website hosting plan for it. Whenever you type the Internet domain in your web browser, you see the content that is uploaded within the web hosting account, but if that domain isn't linked to such an account or to an e-mail service, it's 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 could be directed to any other URL of your choice. The main benefit of parking a domain address is that you can keep it and make certain that no one else will take it. Meanwhile, it won't block a slot for a hosted domain name inside your account. You can also 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.
