    In Cpanel, it's very easy to do this, Now on Centminmod how can I park a domain?
    Just add another domain on server_name line?

    Yeah just add another server_name entry on same line for non-https domains. For https existing domains, you might need a separate server level context as the http to https redirect would push parked domains to https (if you have $server_name variable) and if you don't have an SSL certificate with same details as your existing https domain (i.e. multi-domain SSL or multi-domain wildcard SSL needed), it won't work well for the parked domain unless you have a separate https server context for parkedomain.com with it's own separate https/443 vhost and pointing to it's own normal SSL certificate.

    note: parkedomain.com domain would need to have SSL certificate too for below config
    Code:
    server {
      listen 80;
      server_name community.centminmod.com parkedomain.com;
       return 301 https://$server_name$request_uri;
    }
    or you can change $server_name to just the domain with https SSL certificate so non-https parkedomain.com redirects
    Code:
    server {
      listen 80;
      server_name community.centminmod.com parkedomain.com;
       return 301 https://community.centminmod.com$request_uri;
    }
    for non-https normal just

    Code:
    server {
      listen 80;
      server_name community.centminmod.com parkedomain.com;
    }
