How to Create a Parked Domain (Alias) in cPanel

Parked domains (aliases) are domains that you own, but which do not contain any content. Instead, they point to the contents of another domain or subdomain on your account. This is useful, for example, to hold a domain that you will later sell, or to redirect traffic to another domain.

For example, you can make www.example.net and www.example.org show content from www.example.com.
