What is an Alias Domain (Parked Domain) & How to create an Alias Domain in cPanel

Alias domains are additional domains hosted on your account which display the same website as your primary domain.

For example, if you own mystore.com and it is the primary domain of your cPanel account, you can set up mystore.net as an alias domain and it will load the content of mystore.com. When you visit mystore.net, you will notice that although the content of mystore.com is loading in the browser, the address bar will display mystore.net.

Alias domains are useful for instances where you own multiple extension of the same domain name and you want them to all load the same content.  If you own the .com version of your domain but also own the .net and .org versions of the same domain you can set them up as Aliases in cPanel so they point to the .com.


Domains must be registered with a valid registrar before they can be set as an Alias. In addition, a domain will not be functional unless it is pointed to HostUpon name servers.
