Parked Domains and Addon Domain Explained

Parked domains are additional domain names which you host on your account. This is now known as Domain Alias. They  do not have web pages associated with them. They will display the same website as your primary domain. Parked domains are often used by businesses that want to have more than one web address for advertising purposes.

An addon domain is a fully functional domain that can be created from within your control panel. Think of it as having multiple hosting packages all sharing the same control panel. You can create email addresses, forwarders and more — the same way you do for your primary domain on the account.

To park domains, drop us an email with the following details:
  1. Your Main domain name
  2. Your addon / parking domain name
  3. Domain Addon / Domain Parking (choose one)
    Note: For addon domain, a domain.ext folder will be created automatically in your public_html, your website files will be served from that folder.
Adding Addon Domain:

Step 1.  Log in to cPanel.

cPanel-Login-SS | Domains

 

Step 2. Once logged in, click on  ’Addon Domains’ link under the ‘Domains’ panel.

Step 3.  Enter the domain name in the New Domain Name field.create-addon-domain

Step 4. The system will automatically fill in the subdomain name and Document Root (director). This will be the folder cPanel creates in your public_html folder. Normally, you want to ensure the name you provide doesn’t exist yet as a folder in public_html, but cPanel will automatically suggest the name and we recommend you stick with the suggestion.

Click on Add Domain button.add-addon-domain

Your new domain is now successfully added.
