Adding a Parked Domain
Posted by Administrator on 20 September 2005 09:17 PM
Parked Domain is a domain name that points to the same web location as your main domain in your cPanel account. For example, if your main website is located at petstore.com and you would like to have petshop.com point to the same location, you would create a Parked Domain for petshop.com.

To add a domain to your main account, follow the steps outlined below:

Step 1: Log into cPanel.

To log into cPanel, you should go to http://www.yourdomain.com/cpanel/ (where www.yourdomain.com is replaced by your account domain name).

Step 2: Locate the Parked Domains link on the main screen upon login.

You will see this link after logging in (usually on the top row, located in the center).

Step 3: Enter the domain name that will be parked.

For this value, you should only put the domain name (without www. at the beginning). For example, you would put petshop.com in this field, not www.petshop.com.

Step 4: Press the Add Domain! button to add the parked domain.

This is the last step in cPanel so that your Parked Domain is configured.

Step 5: Change the name servers for the parked domain you just added.

Your name servers for the parked domain would be the same name servers that you were given for the main server. If you are unsure about the name servers, please look at the Activation/Welcome e-mail sent to you when your account was set up.
