If you are using the updated version of cPanel, then you will see Aliases in place of Parked domain in the Domain section. They are same thing, but simply named with a different term. In the tutorial below you can replace the term "parked domain" with "alias".

Parked domains are used to point the new domain name to a different domain. To give an example, if we have "example.com" and we want "example.net" to display the same website, we'd set it up as a parked domain.

Adding a Parked Domain to cPanel:

  1. Login to cpanel.
  2. Under Domains click the Parked Domains button.
    parked1
  3. Enter the domain name you want to add, in the Create a New Parked Domain section. Then click the Add Domain button.
    2parked

    You will then see a message stating: "The parked domain example.com has been successfully created for you."

It can take up to 24 hours for a Parked domain to show up on the web, or propagate.

In the most recent version of cpanel "parked domains" are now referred to as Aliases.  Please update this post as this is very confusing.

Hello,

The terms have been noted in the article above. We still have not changed to the new version of cPanel on all of our hosting servers, so this article will remain until the changes have been implemented completely. I have added a note to the article to help clarify the issue.

If you have any further questions or comments, please let us know.

Regards,
Arnel C.
