(Domain Name) A domain name which has been registered, but is not being used for a website is referred to as "parked." Some companies put up pages for such parked names that say "for sale," or "under construction." Without that, a name that is registered but not being used will result in a "page cannot be displayed" page.
Domain names registered with the InterNIC (and therefore reserved), but not active for website or ecommerce service. Parking domain names is useful if you have a domain name that you would like to reserve, but do not intend to use immediately.
In order to own a domain name one must register that name (if it is available) with a domain name registrar and pay a yearly fee. Additionally, the name must be hosted by a domain name server. When there is no website associated with a properly registered domain name that domain name is said to be "parked". Parking is used as a means of reserving domain names for future use. The owner of the domain name server normally charges a fee for parking the domain name.
A term used to describe for temporarily placing a record in a nameserver for later use. Many registrars and hosting companies will "park" your domain for free until you launch your website. Some registrars charge a parking fee. Usually, the registrar or hosting company hopes that once you complete your website, you will end up hosting your site with them. This is usually why they park your domain for free.
To park a domain name with a Webhosting company is to register the name, then leave it on that company's server wothout using it.
Domain traffic monetization done by companies called "aggregators". By forwarding your domain or changing the domains nameserver to that of the aggregator, these companies will display relevant advertisements in an effort to target the traffic coming to that domain. Then, when a visitor clicks, the search company providing the links pays the aggregator, who in turn shares the revenue with the domain owner.
All domain names have to be stored on a server in order to be purchased. Most domain registration services will therefore temporarily place a newly purchased name on their servers until a hosting plan is purchased or the owner points the DNS to a different site. This is known as parking.
Please look at Hosting.
(Domain Name) Parking is the process by which someone selects a domain name, and "parks" it by registering the domain name under someone's name servers. This allows the person to own the domain name without having to worry about creating and hosting a site for the domain name. Parking a domain name alone will result in no service (this includes web hosting and e-mail) for that particular domain name. A parked domain name may be "unparked" at anytime.
When a registered domain is parked, the domain is reserved but remains inactive. A temporary Web page is displayed until the site is unparked — or activated. Domain name parking is often used by registrants who do not yet have a hosting provider or who haven't yet built a site for the domain.
All domain names when newly purchased need to be stored on a server. Most domain registrars will temporarily place the new domain on their servers until the new owner changes the DNS to point to a different site. While the domain is in this temporary location the domain is known to be parked.
Domain Parking/Domain Aliasing refers to the process of adding additional domain names to a hosting account with all of the domain names resolving to the account's index page. For example, say you have cats.com parked to your main account at pets.com. This would mean that anyone who goes to cats.com would automatically go to pets.com. There is no actual hosting involved with cats.com.

Colloquialism. A domain name that is not being used with any web server may be programmed into nameservers and left inactive, put "on hold" until the domain is used in conjunction with a server or site. Many registration services offer this service, sometimes it is included in the registration fee, while others may charge an additional DNS fee for this service.
Registries require the use of name servers or hosts for every domain registered. Parking is the process by which someone selects a domain name, and "parks" it by registering the domain name under someone's name servers. Parking can be done by anyone, to anyone else who has active name servers. However, parking a domain name alone will result in no service (webhosting, e-mail) for that particular domain name.
The practice of selecting a domain name, and 'parking' it on a web host's web server. A parked domain name is frequently used as an 'alias' to redirect Internet requests to another domain name to avoid having to maintain multiple web sites. For example, if a domain named parkeddomain.com is parked on another domain named mydomain.com, an Internet request for a page of parkeddomain.com will display the corresponding page of mydomain.com except the URL will still be parkeddomain.com. A parked domain name may not support any service ( hosting, e-mail, etc.) for that particular domain name.
Term used for temporarily placing a record in a name server for later use. Many registrars while park your domain at no cost until you are ready to build a web site.
A domain name that is not being used with any web server may be programmed into nameservers and left inactive, put "on hold,” or directed to a marketing/advertisement page to generate revenue for the owner.
