Parked domains are additional domains which you host on your account. They will display the same website as your primary domain and do NOT have separate web statistics, but you can give the parked domain its own email boxes. Parked domains are often used by businesses that want to have more than one web address for advertising purposes.

An example of a parked domain is;
if you own domain1.com and it is the primary domain of your cPanel account, you can set up domain2.com as a parked domain and it will load the content of domain1.com. You will notice that although the content of domain1.com is loading in the browser, the address bar will display http://domain2.com/.

Parked domains contains the exact same content of the primary domains. We encounter many websites that have different addresses. This is mainly used to get more traffic and for advertizing purposes.
