Adding parked domains 

The Parked Domain Maintenance menu allows you to add parked domains to your account. A parked domain allows you to reach your domain when entering the name of the parked domain into a browser. You can use a parked domain to allow multiple spellings of a domain name to access a single domain. 
 
Here are the steps:

  1. To access the Parked Domain Maintenance menu, click the words "Parked Domains" on the main screen of your cPanel interface
  2. To add a parked domain, enter the name of the domain in the blank field next to "New Domain Name:," and click on "Add Domain"

Note: If the parked domain was added successfully, the following will appear (except it will contain information about your domains and servers): 

Nameserver ips for domain2.com are: 1.2.3.4,5.6.7.8 Bind reloading on servername using rndc Bind reloading on nameserver using rndc Bind reloading on nameserver2 using rndc Bind reloading on nameserver3 using rndc

Created DNS entry for domain2.com

Setup Mail forward domain2.com -> domain1.com

Setup domain2.com OK

Adding httpd.conf entry for domain2.com to point to domain1.com

Troubleshooting: Make sure to register the parked domain with a valid domain registrar or else it will not work.


Removing parked domains


The Parked Domain Maintenance menu allows you to remove parked domains to your account. If a parked domain is no longer necessary, you can remove it without removing the main domain.

Here are the steps:

  1. To access the Parked Domain Maintenance menu, click on the icon above the words "Parked Domains" on the main screen of your cPanel interface
  2. To remove a parked domain, select the domain from the drop box next to "Remove Parked Domain," and click on "Remove Domain"


Note: If the parked domain was added successfully, the following will appear (except it will contain information about your domains and servers) :
