If you wish to register a domain name to make certain that nobody else will take it, but you have not created the site for it yet, you could park it. This is a feature that registrar companies provide if a domain name is not connected to any web or e mail hosting service. In this way, you can protect a brand name, for example, and you will own the domain in question although it will not load any content. If you wish, you can choose some default template that the registrar offers, like For Sale or Under Construction, alternatively you can direct the domain to another web address. The second option is very helpful in case you own a number of domain names, but you want every one of them to open the same site. As an illustration, you could register domain.net and domain.org, then park them and direct them to domain.com. In this example, you'll need hosting for the third domain address only and the traffic to the other ones will be redirected to it.
