I want to have another domain name pointed to my existing website, how do I park a domain name?
The first step is to register the new domain name. You can do that by going here:
To park a new domain name to your existing site, there is a one-time-only $15 charge for each parked domain that you have, unless your account already has some parks unlocked (the Value package doesn't come with any, but all other hosting packages come with at least 5). You can have as many parked domains as you like.
If you don't have any parks included/available in your hosting package, you can order a parked domain from here: http://www.allwebco.com/add-ons.shtml
- make sure that you put in your CURRENTLY hosted site -ex: yourcurrentsite.com in the field when you place the order.
After you place that order, you'll receive an email letting you know when the order has been processed and your control panel is unlocked.
You can then login to your control panel, click on "Applications" on the menu on the left, and then on "park domain" at the top of the page, and park a domain name there.
At the bottom of that same page, are the controls to allow you to park the domain name to a subdirectory, along with directions on how to do it if you want to do that.
It generally takes about 4 to 6 hours for the setup of the park. When it is ready you will be able to go to your control panel
( http://YOURDOMAIN.COM/cgi-bin/plusmail )
and click APPLICATIONS on the left menu. On the next screen you will click on PARK DOMAIN at the top.
On the next screen in the first field (white box) you will type in: yournewdomain.com (WITHOUT the "www.") and press the button to park the domain. It will take a few moments so please be patient. When it is done it will come back with a message that it is being processed. After this it will take approximately 2 to 3 hours for it to propagate.
Don't forget: If you didn't register the new domain name through us, you will need to change the DNS (Domain Name Server) entries on the second domain name to point to our servers.
What name server entries you should use depends on the type of account you have.
If you have a Plusmail account where your control panel is located at an address like http://YOUR-DOMAIN-NAME.com/cgi-bin/plusmail then you should use these DNS entries:
If you have a cPanel account where you control panel is located at an address like this: http://YOUR-DOMAIN-HERE.com/cpanel then you should use these DNS entries:
