Parked Domains, also referred to as Alias Domains or Domain Alias, are often used to have more than one web address for advertising purposes. Parked domains are additional domains hosted on your account, displaying the same website as your primary domain and sharing the same web statistics. Like a regular domain. 

 

For example, if you own domain1.com and your cPanel account's primary domain, you can set up domain2.com as an alias domain. When you visit domain2.com, you will notice that although the content of domain1.com is loading in the browser, the address bar will display http://domain2.com/.
