Using the Parked Domains section of CPanel, I added a parked domain to my site. To my understanding this should both forward and mask the domain. So far, it's just forwarding. Do I need to do anything else to make it mask?

Thanks for the question. There may be some mis-understanding of the term "parked domain". A parked domain allows you to redirect a domain name to another website. It does not mask a domain's information. I'm not sure what you're trying to accomplish by "masking" a domain. If you're referring to "hiding" a domain's contact information, then you may be referring to domain privacy. If you have any further questions, please let us know.
