How to add a Parked domain via the xneelo Control Panel

The information in this article is related to the new xneelo Control Panel.
If you are still using konsoleH, refer to this article.

Parked domains are domain names that mirror the content of the domain under which it is ‘parked’. They also include one mailbox. No hosting fees apply.

For example, you can park example.org under example.com. When browsing to example.org, the example.com website will be displayed, but the URL will remain example.org.

Assist Note

A Parked Domain has the same IP address as the domain name on which it is parked.

Although Parked Domains do not have their own web content, they do include one mailbox. Additional mailboxes can be added at a fee of R9 per month each.

Note the difference between Parked Domains and a Redirect: When browsing to a Parked Domain, the URL remains unchanged whereas in the case of a Redirect the URL changes to that of the redirected webpage.
