[Classic] Domain Aliasing

DNS (Domain) Aliasing: DNS Aliasing allows you to host more than one domain name on a single hosting account. By typing your DNS Alias address (http://www.aliasdomain.com) in the browser, your visitors will automatically see the content on your primary website (http://www.primarysite.com).

This redirection is performed at the Domain Name Server level and does not involve any script or redirection. It’s fast, reliable, and will work with any web browser. The DNS Alias does not change your existing address or web site in any way. Additionally, since the DNS Alias is implemented on the DNS level, not only are HTTP and FTP connections forwarded to your primary site content, but also your e-mail is delivered to your mailbox on your primary domain name. For example, if you send an e-mail to joe@aliasdomain.com, it will be delivered to joe@primarysite.com.

To sign up for a Domain (DNS) Alias:

  1. Login to your Control Panel 
  2. Click on Hosting (Windows or Linux) 
  3. Click on Upgrades and options followed by Domain Name Aliases.
