When it comes to domain name management via your control panel, LPCP offers a great way to park a domain name, where you need it, on your hosting account. A parked domain name would be one that is placed on top of a location. As an example, lets say I own both mydomain.com and mydomain.net. The domain mydomain.com is my main domain, but I can park mydomain.net on top of it so that anybody going to mydomain.com or mydomain.net will both be sent to the same server location where my web site is stored.

How do you park a domain name in LPCP?

First thing you need to do is to click on the icon labeled, Parked Domains from the LPCP control panel main page or click on the the Parked Domains link under the Domains header in the left navigation sidebar.

Now, from the Select Domain drop down box, select the main domain. In the box marked for the Parked Domain be sure to type in the parked domain name. (You should type in your domain name as "yourdomain.com" changing it to reflect the domain name you wish to park).
