Domain Aliases / Pointers
Posted by Joe Rebis (Import) on 17 September 2006 12:51 AM

A domain alias is the full domain name that will alias the main hosted domain for an account. When connecting to the domain alias name through a web browser, you will see the same web site as the main hosted domain. For example, if you had a domain "sampledomain.com" and added the domain alias "testdomain.com", then assuming both of these domains were registered to you, a user would visit testdomain.com and get sent to the original "sampledomain.com" site.

Domain Alias at EPhost, will also work with email. The email address at the main Domain will correspond to the same user at the Domain Alias. e.g. If your main Domain was "ephost.com" and you had a Domain Alias of "ep.com" then support@ephost.com is the same as support@ephost.com.

To add a domain alias:

  1. Login to the Control Panel
  2. Click Domains and Select a Domain
  3. Click "Domain Aliases" from the Domain Menu and click "Add New". Type in the name of the domain alias.
  4. Click "Save".

To delete a domain alias after it has been created, click the domain alias from the menu and click "Delete", then "OK" to confirm.
