cPanel is known to be a top favourite among customers from around the globe.

What customers love about cPanel is its ability to provide direct support, stable builds, and its outstanding customer service. You will surely enjoy your website management by getting a web hosting provider that will give you the best services.

cPanel also has a very efficient control panel which allows you do to a lot of things. One of those is being able to manage your subdomains, add on domains, and parked domains. The domains section will also help you set redirects for your URLs. Apart from this, you can also purchase a domain name transfer and a domain ID protection. You can register a new domain, change the primary domain name for your account and manage the DNS configuration of your domains.

 

The Add on domain enables you to add add on domains to your account. An add on domain will allow you to reach a domain when entering the name of the add on domain into a browser, which enables you to host additional domains in your account.  Here is the step by step process on how to create an add on domain in your account:

 

  1. To access the Addon Domains tool, click on the corresponding icon located on the main screen of your cPanel interface.
  1. Enter the name of the addon domain in the blank field next to New Domain Name.
  1. Enter the name of the directory which contains the subdomain that the addon domain will point to in the blank field next to Subdomain/FTP Username: (This directory will be the location for the addon domain’s files, just as public_html is the location for your primary domain’s files.)
  1. Type in the password for the new addon domain, and click on Add Domain!

 

You can also remove an add on domain using the following process:

 

  1. To access the Addon Domains tool, click on the corresponding icon located on the main screen of your cPanel interface.
  1. To remove an addon domain, click on the Remove link next to it.

 

You can also redirect the addon domain to another URL using the Manage Redirection link.

 

Another type of domain is the parked domains. The parked domains feature allows you to add parked domains to your account. A parked domain will enable you to reach your domain when entering the name of the parked domain into a browser. You can use a parked domain to allow multiple spellings of a domain name to access a single domain.

 

Here is a step by step process on how you can add a parked domain to your account:

 

  1. To access the Parked Domains feature, click on the corresponding icon located on the main screen of your cPanel interface.
  1. To add a parked domain, enter the name of the domain in the blank field and click on Add Domain.

 

Similar to the add on domain, you can also removed parked domains from your account. If a parked domain is no longer neeeded, you can remove it without removing the main domain.

 

  1. Access the Parked Domains feature, click on the corresponding icon located on the main screen of your cPanel interface.
  2. To remove a parked domain, click on the Remove link next to it.
  3. You can also redirect the parked domain to another URL using the Manage Redirection link.
