    1) I have them both pointing to the same box IP by the registrar and checked via Whois.

    2) They are both name based.

    3) They are similar but the second one is just a comon mispelling of the original one such as in www.applebee.com and www.aplebee.com


    If possible please list step by step using WHM and/or cPanel.

    Thanks.

    In cpanel for the main domain add the other as a parked domain.

    Depending on the theme click server then click parked domain and you can add it there.

    I tried to enter the parked domain and I got this message:

    --------------------------------------------------------
    Parked Domain Additions

    Nameserver ips for xxxxxxxx.com are: xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx, xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx Sorry, that domain (xxxxxxxx.com) is already pointed at an ip address that does not appear to use dns servers on this server or master servers! Please transfer the domain to this server's nameservers or have your admin add one of its nameservers ips to /etc/ips.remotedns and make the proper A entries on that remote nameserver!
    --------------------------------------------------------


    I don't use the server's DNS. I'm using my server provider's DNS servers.
    I have the additional domain registered to point to the right DNS server and the DNS entry in my server provider DNS is correct. As a matter of fact when I type the new domain I get the "There is no website configured at this address." message from my box's cPanel so it's being sent to the right box. Also I checked /etc/ips.remotedns and it's an empty file.

    Can someone tell me what I should do?

    Thanks.
