Parked domains (aliases)

Parked domains (which are referred to as aliases in newer versions of cPanel) are often used to reserve or “hold” a domain name that does not have an associated web site. Parked domains can also be used as placeholders for existing web sites. For example, if you own the example.com domain name, you can park the domain so it redirects to the primary domain of your FrikiHost Hosting account.

To use a parked domain, you must register the domain name. Additionally, you must configure the domain name's DNS records to point to your web site's nameservers. If you need further assistance, please open a support ticket.
