How can I park a domain? What is a parked domain?

A parked domain name is an additional domain name that leads to the same place as the main domain name for your account. Parked domains are often used by businesses that want to have more than one web address for advertising purposes, or for businesses that have more complicated or longer URL's.

For example, if you had mydomain.com and wanted mydomain.net to lead to the same place, you would park mydomain.net on mydomain.com. You can easily do this from your cPanel.
