What are Addon and Parked Domains?

With our hosting packages, Addon and Parked domains are often one of the available features. Addon and Parked domains allow you to use additional domains (which you own/have registered) with your hosting account for the purposes of redirection, mirroring and hosting other websites. 
 
Addon and Parked domains are quite simple to setup and are done so via their respective icons within your cPanel. The differences between the two are: 
 
  • Parked Domains: When a domain is setup as a Parked Domain it mirrors the content of the primary domain in the hosting account. This is useful when you own for example, both the .com and .com.au of your business name. 
  • Addon Domains: These allow you to host additional separate websites from your one hosting account. The files for the additional domains will be hosted within the one account, but to normal web viewers they will appear as completely separate websites. 
 
In both instances you can setup emails and redirects as you please. Please also remember that Addon and Parked Domains need to be pointed to our hosting servers in order to function.
