What are Parked Domains?
Parked Domains are really domain pointers that allow you to "point"
or "park" domain names to your existing hosting account. For
example, your main web site is DomainA.com, but you also have DomainB.com.
cPanel allows you to "point" or "park" DomainB.com
to your main domain or web hosting account at DomainA.com.
Creating A New Parked Domain
1. Enter the domain name you want to "point"
or "park" to the web hosting account you are currently managing
with cPanel in the text box provided.
2. Click on the "Add Domain!"
Domains you "point" or "park" to the web hosting account
you are currently managing MUST be registered with a valid registrar before
they can be used. In addition, you need to point your domains to the DNS
servers you are currently using for DomainA.com. Changing DNS server entries
are accomplished by using your registrar's control panel. They cannot
be modified using the cPanel interface.
3. The next page will state "The parked
domain DOMAIN_YOU_ARE_PARKING has been successfully created for you.
4. Click on the "Go Back" button.
5. When the page loads, you will see a
table with your newly created Parked Domain containing the following information,
split into three columns:
- This entry will be the Parked Domain you created in Step 1 above.
Root - This entry will be the path to the Parked Domain. The system
will automatically default the path to home/public_html.
- Click on the "X" icon to remove the Parked Domain.
When the next page loads, click on the "Yes" button to remove
the Parked Domain. A confirmation page will display "The parked domain
YOUR_PARKED_DOMAIN has been successfully removed."
