To add a Parked Domain sign into your cPanel and follow these steps:

1) Go to Domains and click Parked Domains

2) Enter the desired name for your new parked domain

3) Click Add Domain

4) You will then get a confirmation page that your parked domain has been created

      Please send an e-mail to support[@] and provide them with your user name and domain name. They will be able to assist you in parking the domain.

    If I need to add 32 parked domains and each of these parked domains needs to be redirected to one of my add-on domains, is there a way to do this faster than manually entering all the dialogs?

  4. I have my domain i created a separate cpanel account for its subdomain I have another domain hosted on same whm as another account. I want to add as parked domain under account

    The domain, “” may not be created by “demos” because it is already owned by another user.

      Hi, unfortunately that can not be done on our Linux reseller servers. If you are just wanting to point the domain to just add it under parked domains on the account and use the redirect option. Regards.
