The way I know is to use cheap reseller hosting for a live, existing domain and use the account(s) to "park" or "host" inactive or new domains with a coming soon or blank page.
There's an added advantage, by doing that, of being able to robots.txt exclude the domain and use a subdirectory to try out and experiment with various types of code or design, or a CMS or blog software installation.

Great idea once I figured out what it was...looping IP
I tried that and their system won't take it for nameservers...get invalid error.
If I use it as a "forward to" for the domain then GoDaddy will take it, but when I direct navigate to the domain name it forwards to this weird page "loop advertising - comming soon" in the title (mispelled "comming" and all)
On the page it shows a green logo "Loop" and under says "your session is loading", but nothing loads of course
If I try to direct navigate to [127.0.0.1...] then I get "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage" Which is exactly what I would like. I suppose it's a GoDaddy thing and they send everything that is looped to the mysterious green page?
