cPanel is a control panel which is used for web hosting and has an interface which is graphical in nature. It is Linux based and uses systematically auto designed tools to perform the functions. A parked domain is a secondary domain whose function is to point to the user’s primary domain. When the parked domain’s website is accessed by the users, the primary website is displayed instead.
For example, cpanel.com is a parked domain that points to http://www.cpanel.net/. When you http://www.cpanel.com, the http://www.cpanel.net/ is accessed by the user the website is displayed.
A parked domain name must be registered before visitors can access it.
The following steps must be performed in order to create a parked domain:
The option Reset must be selected to reset the form.
When you an addon domain, parked domain, subdomain, or main domain, is created the domain with the best-available existing certificate is automatically secured by the system. The system will generate a self-signed certificate to secure the new domain. In the absence of a certificate.
If Auto SSL is enabled for the account that owns the new domain, a request will be added for an Auto SSL certificate to secure the new domain and install it when available.
The following file must be added to the domain if domains are not to be parked on a specific protected domain:
/u s r/local/cPanel/etc/common domains
