Creating A Domain Alias
To set up a domain alias:
- Go to Domains > domain name > Domain Aliases.
- Click Add Domain Alias.
- Type the desired domain alias name, for example alias.com.
Domain aliases can comprise letters, digits and hyphens. Each part of the domain alias between dots should not be longer than 63 symbols.
- Select the Synchronize DNS zone with the primary domain check box if you want the domain alias to use the same DNS zone resource records as in primary domain. With this setting, any subsequent changes in resource records of the primary domain's zone will be applied to the DNS zone of this domain alias.
- Select the Mail check box, if you want e-mail directed at the e-mail addresses under the domain alias to be redirected to the e-mail addresses under your original domain name.
Example: You have an e-mail address firstname.lastname@example.org. You have set up an alias for your domain name, for example, alias.com. If you want to receive mail to your mailbox email@example.com when it is sent to firstname.lastname@example.org, select theMail check box.
- Select the Web check box. Otherwise, the web server will not serve the web content to users coming to your site by typing the domain alias in their browsers.
- If you use hosting services based on a Linux platform, and you have Java applications installed on your site that you want to make accessible through the domain alias, select the Java Web applications check box.
- Click OK.
