Go to CO.CC and sign up. If you really don’t want to give out your address and crap, make it up, you can go back in settings and delete it later anyways.
Alright, you got your domain. You have two choices. Redirect and DNS nameserver.

Redirect is for noobs. This is what it does:
People type your URL, www.blah.co.cc, into their browser.
After a few seconds, the address bar shows “blah.x10hosting.com”
Ewwwww. Ugly.

DNS Nameserver is the way to go. If you did sign up at x10hosting (which I hope you did), then you need to put these two URLs into the namerserver boxes:

ns1.x10hosting.com
ns2.x10hosting.com


Submit the form. Then it will say it will take 48 hours. It might, but it took 30 minutes for my domain to connect.

NOW. Go to your cPanel and click on “Parked Domains”. Put your newly-acquired domain in and wait. After a while it should work.
And the coolest thing about setting it up this way is that is functions like a real domain.
For example, if you have an /images folder, then a way to access it is blah.co.cc/images, instead of blah.x10hosting.com/images.

That a nice tutorial. But you can also make it direct to your domain directly rather than using it as a parked domain. Just login to the x10hosting (not the CPanel) and there you have a second box where you can specify the domain name so that you can change your previous subdomain for example

http://test.x10hosting.com

to

www.test.co.cc

Also, if you dont want to enter all your details, disable javascript. then enable it after sign up.

Is there a way to make it compatible with a specific existing directory like domain.x10hosting.com/directory/sub would just be domain.cc/sub

Not bad guide, but why 'Park Domain', why not set it up as an 'Addon Domain'.
