Domain parking refers to the process of reserving a domain name in advance for future use. Domain parking can be used to defend against cybersquatting or to get involved in cybersquatting, a technique that involves the acquisition of a domain name that is exactly identical to the name of a pre-existing business and then selling this domain name to the original name-holder for a profit. In domain parking, there is no need to upload any content on the website, which usually just displays just an under construction page. The domain name acquired using the domain parking process is known as a parked domain.
