The domains that you own but that do not contain any content is parked domains. You can use parked domains to hold a domain that is for sale or redirect traffic to another domain. You must register a parked domain name before visitors can access it. Now let’s go straight into the steps to Manage or Create parked domains in cPanel.
Create a New Parked Domain (Alias)
- Log into cPanel account
- Click the Parked Domains icon
- Enter the name of the domain that you wish to park in the available text box.
- Click Add Domain
To open the parked domain’s home directory with the File Manager (Home >> Files >> File Manager), click the link under Document Root that corresponds to the parked domain that you would like to view.
You will see Aliases in place of Parked domain in the Domain section if its an updated version of cPanel. They are same thing, but simply named with a different term.
Enable or disable parked domain redirection
To enable or disable redirection of a parked domain, perform the following steps:
- Click the Manage Redirection link that corresponds to the parked domain that you wish to manage.
- If you wish to redirect the domain, enter the link to which you wish to redirect the parked domain in the available text box.
- Click Save.
To disable the redirect, click Disable Redirection.
Remove parked domains
To remove an existing parked domain, perform the following steps:
