    Is this something that can't be done? Or is this a much needed feature request?

    Use a "Park Domains" option in cPanel to redirect the .net and .com domains to .org

    Doesn't this just allow a site to be accessed from different URLs?

    My customer wants to have a visitor be able to type in domain.com and be redirected and see domain.org in the address bar.

    How is this accomplished?

    Also redirecting in cPanel is dealing with folders not domains, correct?

    As already mentioned use the "Parked Domains" feature within cPanel.

    What am I missing here?

    When You park a domain in cPanel you are accessing a website with an alternate address. This does not redirect.

    Park does not redirect. Now redirecting a parked domain seems to only point to a folder not a domain. When you park a domain how do you then redirect it to the domain you want to show?

    Hi,

    If you wish to redirect a .com or .net domain to .org and wish to have .org in the address bar then you cannot do it using a Park domain option.

    You will have to physically host the domain on the server and then using the redirect code in index.html or .htaccess, you can redirect the domain.

    Add the domain as an add-on domain, create the index.html or .htaccess file and place the code as follows:

    redirect index.html http://domain.org

    This will allow visitor to be able to type in domain.com and be redirected and see domain.org in the address bar.

    Thanks.

    This is going to get real messy as there will be 30+ control panels hosted doing a redirect only. How do we go about suggesting an add feature for cPanel. I believe there should be an easier way to be able to do this for the future.

    I've wondered about something similar to this as well..

    was wanting a 'frame redirect' to place new domains ordered into until the client took control and moved.. i remember an competitor's cp used to do this from the resellers section and am wondering if it can be set up in cPanel. i.e. anydomain.com frame-forwards to hostdomain.com/parkpage.html

    as for the OP good luck with that.. redirects can get messy after a while.

    If you are using 11, you can just click manage redirection under the parked domain. WHM also has a facility for parking and redirecting domain without an account.

    I am using version 11.18.3 (current stable) and I do not have any "manage redirection" option within the parked domain section. Do I have to do this via WHM's domain forwarding? If so, do I need to unpark from within Cpanel first?
