A parked domain name is one which is taken, however it's not linked to another service - web or email hosting. In other words, such a domain won't load any actual content if you type it in a browser, but no one can take it as you have already registered it and you are its owner. The advantage of getting a domain name and parking it afterwards is that you are able to keep it and not worry that somebody else might register it meanwhile if, for example, the website for it is not ready yet. You may set a short-term Under Construction website page for a parked domain while you're working on the website, or forward it to another web address - temporarily or permanently. The second option can be employed if you have already registered domain.com, for instance, and you get domain.net and domain.org, so that you can protect a brand name or a trademark. In this case, the .net and .org domain names can be parked and forwarded to the .com because you do not need individual sites for them.
