    Adding Parked domains in cPanel

    How do I add a parked domain using cPanel when the domain in question doesn't yet point to my server?

    One of my big clients is doing a (physical) server move this weekend and I'm hosting a temporal site for them. So I've created the main domain on my server in readiness. Now I need several of the clients other domain to also go to this temporary site.
    Because the nameservers of those other domains still point to the proper site, cPanel won't let me add them as parked domains. Any ideas?

    Obviously adding the parked domains AFTER the nameservers have been changed wouldn't be a problem, but I want to be prepared.

        Add Domain.

        Addon Domains are handled like subdomains as far as the server is concerned, but to the outside world they are separate domains.

        Addon Domains do not have their own cPanel; however, you may still create e-mail accounts, redirects, Fantastico installations, subdomains, etc.

        Web stats for your Addon Domain will be found within the icon of the web stat program you select in cPanel. If you are using an older cPanel theme such as "X", you will need to look under Subdomain Stats to find the web stats.

        Every addon domain is also a subdomain. You may actually load your addon domain in one of three ways:

        addondomain dot com/ (As an Addon Domain Name)
        addondomain dot (As a Subdomain Name)
        primarydomain dot com/ (As a subfolder)

        Don't worry! Visitors will only know the link you give them; they have no way of knowing which domain is your primary domain and which is the addon domain. To your visitors, the Addon Domain appears to have its own hosting plan.

        Note: The temporary URL for an addon or subdomain is
        ipaddress/~username/subfolder/ or servername/~username/subfolder/
        where the username is your cPanel user name for your primary domain.
