This tutorial covers the following topics:
Registering Domains Through the User Area
SiteGround customers can register additional domains through their User Area → Add Services → Register a Domain.
Setup Parked Domains
Parked domains, also referred to as 'domain alias', let you reach your primary site through a different domain name. Let’s say your primary site is example.com. You can also register example.net and assign it as a parked domain to your primary one. This way, the parked domain will be showing the same pages as the main domain. When visitors go to example.net in their browser, they’ll see the same site content as example.com.
Unlimited parked domains are available on all SiteGround accounts. To add a parked domain, go to the User Area → My Accounts → Go to cPanel. In the section Domains, click Parked Domains. There, you can add and remove parked domains for your primary domain.
Note that parked domains must have their NS records pointing to your DNS servers in order to function properly. For more information on parked domains please check out our Parked Domains tutorial.
Setup Addon Domains
An addon domain allows you to have a separate website with a separate domain name on the same web hosting account.
SiteGround offers unlimited addon domains for all hosting plans, except the StartUp plan. To add and remove such domains, log into the User Area → My Accounts → Go to cPanel. In the section Domains, click Addon Domains. During the creation of the addon domain, you need to select a document root folder which will store the website files.
Note that addon domains must have their NS records pointing to your DNS servers in order to function properly. For more information on add-on domains please check out our Addon Domains tutorial.
