If you want to set up a domain that will only be used to point to your primary (main) domain, then you can add the domain to cPanel as an Alias Domain.

For example, if you wanted to have all traffic that went to example.net directed to example.com, you would add example.net as an Alias. In this guide, you can learn how to add an Alias Domain using cPanel.

Add an Alias Domain

  1. First, log into your cPanel.

  2. Click on the image to enlarge screenshot.

    To add an Alias Domain, first select Domains under the Domains sub-header in cPanel

  3. Click on the image to enlarge screenshot.

    On this screen, simply put the domain you want to add in the box, select the option to share the document root and click on Add Domain

Once it has been added, you can manage or remove it from the list of domains.

Hello Joe,

Have you tried using the search bar to find Parked Domains as it should be in your cPanel.

Best Regards,

Same problem here. Think it is called 'Aliases' now?

Are you trying to have the alias point to your main domain? The alias domains are not meant to display any content.
