How do I park a domain name?

A parked domain, or alias, is a secondary domain that points to the user’s primary domain. When users attempt to access the parked domain, they will see the main website. 

NOTE: Domains must be registered before they can be parked. In addition, they will not be functional unless they are configured to point to your DNS servers. 


Using the Control Panel

1. Log into cPanel and click on the Aliases tool under the Domains category.

2. Type the name of the domain name to be parked (or select it from the table if one is shown) in the Add Domain text box, enter the domain name you wish to park.

3. Click Submit and you're done.
