What is a Parked Domain?

A parked domain is NOT a unique Web Property. Instead, it is a masked forward to the primary domain name of your cPanel account, much like a website alias. Parked domains are commonly used when:

- You need a place to park a domain for which you do not have a Web Property
- You have more than one domain that should lead to your primary domain
- You have common misspellings of your domain name that you have registered

Parked domains are often used by businesses that want to have more than one web address for advertising purposes. Parked domains are additional domains hosted on your account which display the same website as your primary domain and share web statistics as well; however, you can give the parked domain its own email boxes.

For example, if you own and it is the primary domain of your cPanel account, you can set up as a parked domain and it will load the content of When you visit, you will notice that although the content of is loading in the browser, the address bar will display This is similar to a masked forward.

•In the Domains section, click the Parked Domains icon.
•Under Create a New Parked Domain, enter the domain name you would like to park on top of your primary domain.
•Click Add Domain.
