The Domain Panel has four icons you want to know about and two you don’t need to use starting out.
The Subdomains area of cPanel allows you to create and manage subdomains. Subdomains appears as a prefix to your main domain name and point to a directory (folder) within the public_html folder. Basically, when you open a hosting account, you open under the name of a main domain of your choice. When you buy and register a new domain name, it will appear as a subdomain in your hosting account and appears ahead of the main domain as a URL.
www.maindomain.com (hosting main domain)
www.newdomain.com (new domain name)
www.newdomain.maindomain.com (default syntax for url)-This is what will appear in the address bar of a browser
This is the section where you create Addon domains. Some hosts do not allow Addon domains. Find one that does. That is why I like Hostgator. Basically, you want to take your new domains and set them up as Addon domains so that the Address bar URL appears with your new domain name and not the prefix URL we talked about in the Subdomain above.
www.newdomain.com is what you will see in the address bar and not www.newdomain.maindomain.com.
This area of cPanel allows you to create and manage parked domains. These are domains you own and are not using so you can point them to a generic page or your main domain.
This area allows you to point a domain to another domain or web page. This is useful when setting up advertising campaigns and you want a domain to point to a merchant landing page or perhaps to a page you have designed. It is a very useful tool for marketing purposes.
Simple Domain Name System Zone Editor
This area lets you add and remove certain records to the DNS system. The DNS system is the process that transfers a domain name into an IP address or number. Unless you are a programmer you do not need to concern yourself with area when starting out.
Advanced DNS Zone Editor
This area lets you add, edit and remove records. Again. this is not for a beginner.
This explains what the Domain Panel is and how it functions. If you want more detailed information, check out the video.
Hope this is helpful.
Stay with it, stay well and May Your Travels Be Prosperous.
