What is a domain name pointer or parked domain?

Whats a domain pointer or parked domain
A domain name pointer is a domain name which simply points to your account. In other words, domain name pointers allow you to have as many domain names point to your website as you wish. These are not multiple accounts with multiple copies of the same website, but instead are two domains pointing to the same website. How it works is simply that both domain names above are pointing to the same IP address.

You can set this up via Parked Domains in the control panel.
