    I current am hosting a site. I have another new domain name that I would like to point to my currently hosted sites store.htm file, how do I do this in my current hosted sites cpanel (direct the new domain specifically to the store.htm file)?

    Why don't you just have your registrar do domain forwarding and have them point it exactly where you want it? Would make things alot less complicated.

    You can do subdomain forwarding to a certain url and then park the new domain on that subdomain (if your host lets you do that)

    if it is hosted in a saparate cpanel then just redirect.

    if you want to host it in the same pane then first addon then redirect.

    if you registered the domain with a registrar that offers DNS control like godady then you can just forward it from there

    Domain 1 is currently hosted on cpanel. Domain 2 is a new domain that needs to be redirected to 1 of Domain 1's files.

    How exactly do I make Domain 2 redirect to that Domain 1 file using cpanel?

    domain 1 = current-domain.com
    domain2 = new-domain.com

    steps

    1- login to cpanel click on addon domain.
    2- type the new-domain.com
    3- go back to the main cpnail page
    4- click on redirect.
    5- from the frop down sellect new-domain.com
    5- on the right hand side type in http://current-domain.com/store.htm

    your are done
