How to park a domain

A parked domain shows the same content as the domain it is parked on, but uses the parked domain name. This tutorial will assume that you are already logged into your cPanel. If you are having problems doing that or don't know how, please view the tutorial named: How to log into cPanel.

Domain parking is useful when you have additional domain names that you want people to be able to use to get to your website. For example, let's say your domain name is yourdomain.com but you also own the domain yourdomain.net, if you park one of the domains on the other then both will result in visitors getting to your web site.

Note: domain parking will NOT work if you have not updated the parked domain name servers to point to your account name servers, so be sure to do that with your registrar first.

On your cPanel main page scroll down to the section called domains and click on the parked domains link. This takes you to a parked domain screen with a box labeled create a new parked domain. Enter the domain you want to park in the box then click the add domain button. You will now go to a verification screen which will confirm that the domain has been successfully parked. Click on the go back link.

The domain will now be listed in the parked domain list. This is where you can also remove parked domains simply by clicking on the remove link and then clicking yes at the confirm screen. A verification screen then loads confirming that you have successfully removed the parked domain. Click the go back link.

You may return and create as many parked domains as your hosting plan allows.

You can now click the home link in the upper left corner and return to the main cPanel page or to exit cPanel use the logout link in the upper right corner. Remember, if you are using a public computer, ALWAYS logout of cPanel before closing.
