Category: cPanel
Tags: # # # # # # #

In earlier versions of cPanel, aliases are called Parked Domains. Parked Domains or Domain Aliases share the same document root. Suppose you have a website abc.com (Parent Domain / Primary Domain) and for which you set up aliases as xyz.com; if you browse xyz.com in the browser, all the content of abc.com will be displayed without changing the URL.

2. Navigate to Domains → Aliases.
