How do I point a parked domain to a specific folder?

To point a parked domain to a subfolder on your website add the following lines in the website’s .htaccess file:

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^parked-domain.com [NC]
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ https://domain.com/subfolder/$1 [L,R=301]

Make sure to change parked-domain.com and domain.com/subfolder with the actual domains and subfolder names.
