    I have over 100 domains that need to be parked on top of 1 domain. Using Home »DNS Functions »Park a Domain seems to be a very time consuming option.

    Is there a script or other way to park multiple domains?

    It doesn't help me. I found that 2+ year old script as well, but no documentation of it. I have tried using it as a basis to make a parked domain script. But it does not work and there are dozens of people in different forums that seem to have the same problem, without a solution.

    The bulk parking request seems to be something from 2006 and yet cPanel had not made it part of the product. Just give the users a input form where they can past dozens of domains to park when in Home »DNS Functions »Park a Domain

    Like many things, cPanel is falling behind on the competition. I have been using cPanel since 2004 when it was ahead of the competition. Sure miss those old days.

    Dozens of people in different forums need to park 100+ domains onto 1 domain and cannot? Sounds serious.

    Who does this sort of action, exactly? More to the point, what competition provides this option right now?

    NOMB I suppose, but, as a user who's been in this for a very long time now, and knowing the effort it takes to purchase a domain, configure it to use my own nameservers, and then add it to a cPanel Powered account, I am curious to know how I might come to be wanting to do all that with 100+ domains, all at the same time.

    Would I be squatting on these domains for reselling purposes, creating domains for spamming purposes, or just covering my bases for those folks that type in my actual URL, incorrectly?

    Thanks in advance for any insight you can provide to enlighten me.

    I did not say a competition provided this action right now. What I said is "Like many things, cPanel is falling behind on the competition." I have exclusively used cPanel for the last 9 years. My admin used Directadmin and every years tells me that I should switch as I am one of the few in his racks that still used cPanel and he has much more freedom and more recent software with directadmin. Such as nginx, dnssec or the latest munin. cPanel still uses Munin 1.4.7 which is about 3 years old!

    Squatting, spamming! Perhaps there are people who need it for that reason. But in my case I have clients with multiple country domains. Some up to 30 different domains just to make sure they have the country domain. For example, they want to park cpanel.de, cpanel.es, cpanel.fr and so on. But then you also have the typos, with or without a - and so on.
