Best Web Hosting Control Panel cpanel allows you to create and manage parked domains. Parked domains function as pointing devices.
Parked domains are domains that you own but do not contain any content. Typically, parked domains are used to hold a domain that is for sale or to redirect traffic to another domain.
Create a Parked Domain
To add a parked domain:
Enter the domain that you wish to park in the available text field.
Click Add Domain
To open the parked domain’s home directory with the File Manager:
Click the link under Document Root that corresponds to the parked domain that you would like to view in the File Manager.
Note: Email accounts can be created for parked domains. Visit the Email Accounts documentation to learn how to set up an email account for a parked domain.
Enable or Disable Parked Domain Redirection
To enable or disable redirection of a parked domain:
Click the Manage Redirection link which corresponds to the parked domain you wish to manage.
If you wish to redirect the domain, enter the link that you would like to redirect the parked domain to in the available text box.
To disable the redirect, click Disable Redirection.
Remove a Parked Domain
To remove an existing parked domain:
Click the Remove link which corresponds to the parked domain that you would like to remove.
Click Yes to confirm that you wish to remove the parked domain.
To keep the parked domain, click No.
Search Parked Domains
To search through the list of parked domains:
Enter the search criteria into the Search field.
Results which match your search criteria will populate the list.
Email Accounts in Parked Domains
Email accounts can be created for parked domains.
When you remove the parked domain, email accounts that are associated with the parked domain will no longer appear in the Best Web Hosting Control Panel (cpanel) interface. However, the contents for this email account still exist in the mail folder of the user’s home directory: home/username/mail
If the domain is added back to the same account as the primary domain, an addon domain, or a parked domain, the email accounts will reappear in the Best Web Hosting Control Panel (cpanel) interface.
If the domain is moved to a different account, the email accounts will need to be added to the new account manually, and the contents of the email account will also need to be moved manually. The email accounts will need to follow the same format that they previously had: same name and same domain.
You can use the Best Web Hosting Control Panel (cpanel) interface to add new accounts
Addon vs. Parked Domains

Treated as a subdomain (other than URL)
Ideal for multiple domains that share the same address
Additional information about Parked Domains
When you remove a parked domain, any email accounts associated with that domain will no longer appear in the Best Web Hosting Control Panel (cpanel) interface. However, the files for these email accounts will still exist. If you re-add the same parked domain, any email accounts associated with that domain will appear in the Best Web Hosting Control Panel (cpanel) interface.
