Overview

A parked domain (or alias) is a secondary domain that points to the user’s primary domain. When users access the parked domain's website, the primary website displays instead.

For example, cpanel.com is a parked domain that points to http://www.cpanel.net/. When you access http://www.cpanel.com, the http://www.cpanel.net/ website displays.

Note:

 You must register a parked domain name before visitors can access it.

Create a parked domain

To add a parked domain, perform the following steps:

  1. Enter the primary domain name in the text box at the top of the interface, or select the domain from the menu.
  2. In the Domain to park text box, enter the domain name that you wish to park.
  3. Click Submit.

Click Reset to reset the form.

Note:

When you create an addon domain, parked domain, subdomain, or main domain, the system will attempt to automatically secure that domain with the best-available existing certificate. If no certificate exists, the system will generate a self-signed certificate to secure the new domain.

If AutoSSL is enabled for the account that owns the new domain, the system will add a request for an AutoSSL certificate to secure the new domain and install it when available.

Disallow parked domains on a domain

If you do not want users to park domains on a specific protected domain, add the domain to the following file:

 /usr/local/cpanel/etc/commondomains
