How do I create a Parked Domain in cPanel?

Category: Domains

A parked domain allows you to point a domain name at the content of your primary domain name (or any addon domains); this is useful where it’s supposed to show the same website or you just wish to temporarily point it to a website. Parked domains aren’t designed to show their own unique content, but simply draw content from another domain name hosted from your service. To create a parked domain follow these steps:

  1. Login to cPanel.
  2. Click the Parked Domains icon.
  3. Enter the domain name to be parked
  4. Click Add Domain.

In order to have the parked domain operational you will need to have it registered and pointed to the Synergy Wholesale cPanel web hosting nameservers. Once the parked domain is setup and pointed to the hosting servers, it may take up to 24 hours to come online.

If you wish to have the domain show it’s own unique content, you may be best using an addon domain.
