What is the difference between a parked domain and an add-on domain?

A parked domain name is an additional domain name that leads to the same
place as the main domain name for your account.

Addon domains give you the ability to add a second site to your web space. Unlike a parked domain, which resolves to the same place as your main site, an addon domain resolves to it's own folder.

Example:
Parked domain:

  • You have two domains mysite.com and my-other-site.com.
  • mysite.com is the domain of your website and you want to add my-other-site.com.
  • You want the two domains to be totally separate/independent websites.
  • You have two domains mysite.com and my-other-site.com.

Addon Domain:

  • You want them both to go to the same place. In other words, when someone types either www.mysite.com or www.my-other-site.com they will go to the same page(s) on your website.
