What is Domain Alias?

Domain aliases are domains owned by you but do not contain any content. Aliases enable you to point one or more domains to your primary domain. For example, if your primary domain is example.com, you could have domain aliases for example.org and example.net that point to example.com.

A domain alias is useful when you have additional domain names that you want people to be able to use to get to your website.

HOW TO: Add new Domain Alias in cPanel

  1. Firstly, login to cPanel.

  2. Secondly, click on Aliases.

  3. Next, enter the new domain and click “Add Domain”.
5. That’s it! Now when someone browses to example.net, they’ll automatically be redirected to example.com.
6. Lastly, make sure to set your domain alias’s DNS settings to the same as your main domain, so the redirection will work properly.

Remove Domain Aliases

  1. Firstly, login to cPanel.

  2. Next, click on Aliases.

  3. Scoll down to the “Remove Aliases” section.

  4. Then click on “Remove” under the Actions column.

Enable or Disable Alias Redirection

  2. Next, click on Aliases.
