How to park a domain in cPanel

 

Domain parking is useful when you have additional domain that you want people  to use to get to your website. For example lets 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 landing on your website.

Note: Domain parking will not work if you haven’t already updated the new domain’s nameservers to point to your account’s nameservers…so be sure to do that with your registrar first.

After you have logged into your cPanel, use the parked domain feature to park an additional domain name on this account.
