Domain parking in WordPress allows you to use an additional domain for your website. You can utilize the domain parking tool in WordPress to park your domain. This tool is located in the WordPress dashboard under Settings > General > WordPress Address (URL).

WordPress is a free and open-source Content Management System (CMS) used for creating and managing websites and blogs. WordPress enables you to publish your content online without the need for programming knowledge.

Domain parking refers to the process where a domain name is directed to another website or IP address. In other words, when you park a domain, instead of displaying its own content, the domain shows the content of another website.

  2. Go to Settings > General > WordPress Address (URL).
  3. In the domain parking section, enter the domain name you want to park.
  4. Click on the add button.
  5. Your domain is now parked using the WordPress tool.

    • Enter the domain name you want to park in the box.
    • Check the option for Share document root (/home/username/public_html).
    • Click on the Submit button.
  2. Parking a domain using DNS:

    • Log in to your domain management panel.
    • Go to the DNS Management section.
    • Create a new CNAME record.
    • In the Name box, enter the domain name you want to park.
    • In the Value box, enter your web server’s IP address.
    • Click on the Save button.
