So I've just got my first ever virtual server, and I have access to everything. This of course means, I also have to set everything up.....and I might not have done this correctly.

I have my website xyz.co.uk up and running.
I can get to it by typing www.xyz.co.uk OR xyz.co.uk

I also have another domain name that I want to park abc.co.uk
I've gone into the cpanel for xyz and parked abc.co.uk

If I type www.abc.co.uk I end up at www.xyz.co.uk (all good)
If I type abc.co.uk I go to the default WHM page - (BAD)

I don't understand how to set it up so I can type abc.co.uk and end up at the my website www.xyz.co.uk.

Please help

You might be cached and that's why one is working and the other one isn't. If you use a proxy such as proxify.net or kproxy.com and type abc.co.uk, do you show the default page or do you show your main domain's site?

Next, when you parked abc.co.uk, you did park it as that and not as Home Page, right? Domains need to be added without the www portion, since we automatically create the www subdomain on any domain. I've seen users in WHM park a domain with www.domain.com and cause the non-www one not to work.
