How to Park a Domain on an Addon Domain

How to Park an Addon Domain in cPanel

You can park a domain on an addon domain in cPanel by completing the following steps:

  1. Log into cPanel.
  2. In the Domains section, click Addon Domains.

    cPanel Addon Domain

  3. In the New Domain Name field, type the domain name you wish to park on top of your addon domain. We will use snappygator.com in this example.

    cPanel create new addon domain

    Note: Once you have entered a domain name, the Subdomain and Document Root fields will automatically populate.
  4. In the Document Root field, erase everything and enter the document root for the addon domain on which you are parking the domain. You can find the document root for the right addon domain in the table under Modify Addon Domain.)

    cPanel Modify document root

  5. Click Add Domain.

Your domain will now be parked on your addon domain!


Domain Already Exists Error

Error from domain wrapper: Domain already exists; it was not added.: example.domain.com

This error can occur when trying to park a domain on an addon domain and could be due to one of two reasons:

  1. The domain being added has already been added and therefore already exists. To correct this, you will need to delete the domain from your addon domains, parked domains, or subdomains before proceeding.
  2. The subdomain being created already exists. When this happens, you can manually change the subdomain, which cPanel automatically generated for your addon domain.
    • For example, if you are trying to park example.com on example.com.au, cPanel will autofill the Subdomain/FTP Username field with the example which may already exist. Change this value to a new variation, like exampleau.
