How to Park a Domain Print

  • 104

This article will teach how to park a domain. A "Parked" domain shows the same content as the domain it is parked on, but uses the Parked domains name. This article will assume that you are signed into your cPanel. Just in case you are having trouble doing that, please check out the article named "How to Login to cPanel". Domain parking is handy when you have any other domain names that you like people to be able to use to get into your web site. For example, let's say your domain name is "". But you also own the domain "". If you park one of the domains on the other, then the two will result in people getting to your web site. NOTE: Domain parking will NOT work if you have not updated the new domain's name servers to point to your account's name servers...hence just remember to do that with your registrar first.

Start by scrolling down your cPanel main page to the area named Domains and click on the icon called Parked Domains. This takes you to a parked domain screen with a box labeled Create a New Parked Domain. Key in the domain you like to park in the box, and after that hit the Add Domain button.

You will at this moment 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 enumerated in the Parked Domain list. This is where you can remove parked domains. Simply click on the Remove link, and then click on the Yes to confirm that you want to remove the parked domain. This takes you to the verification screen, confirming that you have successfully removed the parked domain. Click the Go Back link.

Click on the HOME link in the upper left corner to return to the cPanel main page. This ends the article. You may return and add as many parked domains as your hosting plan allows.

You can now exit cPanel by closing your browser, or by using the Logout button in the upper right corner. Do not forget, if you are using a public computer, ALWAYS Logout of cPanel before closing due to security reasons.
