Setting up a parked domain

Parked domains are domain names that point to your main domain. Your main domain and parked domain share the same web pages. Parked domains do not have separate index pages or folders from your main site. However, they can have their own email addresses.

To set up a parked domain:

  1. Log in to your HostPapa dashboard: https://www.hostpapa.com/dashboard

  2. Click on My cPanel. If you have more than one domain associated with your HostPapa account, click on the appropriate domain link, then enter your cPanel password if required.

  3. From the Domains section, click on the Parked Domains icon.

  1. In the Create a New Parked Domain form, enter the domain name you wish to park (without the www.).

  2. Click Add Domain. A message will be displayed once the domain name has been added.

Please note: Domains must be registered with a valid registrar before they can be parked. In addition, they will not be functional unless they are configured to point to HostPapa’s DNS servers.
