Aliases (Parked Domains):
Aliases (Used to be known as Parked Domains in older versions of cPanel) are often used to reserve or “hold” a domain name that does not have an associated web site. Aliases can also be used as placeholders for existing web sites. For example, if you own the example.com domain name, you can park the domain so it redirects to the primary domain of your XtraOrbit Hosting account.
Aliases display the same website contents as your primary domain. They also share web statistics as well. However, an alias can have its own email boxes.
Aliases are commonly used in the following situations:
- You need a place to park a domain for which you do not have a website
- You have more than one domain that should lead to your primary domain
- You have common misspellings of your domain name that you have registered
