  • One needs to enter the domain name that one wish to park, in the Domain to park text box.
  • Then, click on Submit.

It is to note that while creating addon domain, parked domain, subdomain or main domain, the system automatically secures it with best-available existing certificate. If not available, then it will generate a self-signed certificate to secure the new domain. For example, if AutoSSL is enable for an account to own a new domain, system will add request for an AutoSSL certificate to secure new domain and install it when available.
