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 or alias.
Adding a Parked Domain to cPanel:
- Login to cpanel.
- Under Domains click the Parked Domains or Aliases button.
- Enter the domain name you want to add, in the Create a New Parked Domain or Create a New Alias section. Then click the Add Domain button.
You will then see a message stating: “The parked domain example.net 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.
