If you wish to register a domain to make certain that no one else will take it, however, you haven't created the site for it yet, you can park it. It's a feature that registrar companies provide when a domain address isn't linked to any web or e-mail hosting service. That way, you can protect a brand name, for instance, and you'll own the domain address in question even though it won't load any content. If you'd like, you may choose some standard template that the registrar provides, such as For Sale or Under Construction, alternatively you can forward the domain name to another web address. The second option is extremely helpful in case you own a number of domains, but you want every one of them to open the same site. As an illustration, you can register domain.net and domain.org, then park them and forward them to domain.com. In this example, you are going to need hosting for the third domain address only and the traffic to the other ones is going to be redirected to it.
