What is the difference between an Addon Domain and a Parked Domain?

A common question that's not easily answered, is the defining factors between an Addon Domain and a Parked Domain in cPanel/WHM.

Here's a chart to help simplify the differences:

Characteristic Addon Domains Parked Domains
Main domain appears in the address bar Yes No
Apache directive used VirtualHost ServerAlias
Separate logs Yes No
Separate stats Yes No
Treated as a subdomain (other than URL) Yes No
Ideal for multiple domains sharing the same address No Yes
