Using Parked Domains

A parked domain is much like having two or more addresses for one site, for instance you could have the .net and .org versions of your domain all parked on the .com add-on domain so all three load the same website.

Adding a Parked Domain

  1. Login to your website control panel
  2. Click on Parked Domains
  3. Note the nameservers listed at the bottom (eg. ns1.example.com / ns2.example.com)
  4. Login to your domain registrar control panel (eg. Register.com, Name.com, etc...)
  5. Remove the existing nameservers from the domain you wish to park
  6. Add the nameservers from your control panel and save the domain
  7. Go back to your website control panel
  8. Click on Parked Domains
  9. Type the domain name in the box without http:// or www (eg. example.org)
  10. Select what site it will be parked on from the menu below
  11. Click on Add Parked Domain

If your DNS has been updated properly you will receive a success message and be able to type the domain to access the site you parked it on.

If you receive an error then most likely not enough time has passed between changing the nameservers and adding it to your control panel which can take between 24~72 hours (usually less than 4 hours on average).

Removing a Parked Domain

  1. Login to your website control panel
  2. Click on Parked Domains
  3. Click Delete next to the entry you wish to remove

This will only remove the parked domain, it will not remove any files, e-mails or other information and, if you intend to re-add it either as a parked or add-on domain, to this or any other account on the same service, allow at least one (1) hour to pass before attempting to do so.

Nameservers

Below are the necessary nameservers you should use in configuring your domain, you will need at minimum two (2) if you cannot use all four.

  • ns1.byet.org
  • ns2.byet.org
  • ns3.byet.org
  • ns4.byet.org
