  • What is domain Aliasing?

    WordPress Hosting on SSD Servers
    Hello Peter,

    Supposing I have a domain name hosted and registered as

    abc.com. Now, I want people to be able to send email to

    abc@abc.com and abc@xyz.com but I don't want to have to setup

    and check 2 different email accounts and even when the site

    xyz.com is accessed they are automatically redirected to

    abc.com.


    Here's where Domain Aliasing comes into play:


    To describe this, it's best to acknowledge the difference

    between email users and email addresses. Email users are the

    user accounts you login with (when using webmail or a mail

    client). These users have usernames, passwords, etc. But most

    importantly email users also have addresses. Email addresses

    are the actual addresses that people send email to in their

    email clients (in the TO: field). A Domain Alias enables all

    users in a domain (abc.com) to have another address for the

    aliased domain. For example, if I had a domain alias [xyz.com]

    setup for [abc.com], I can login with abc@abc.com (my user)

    and I can receive mails at both the address abc@abc.com and

    abc@xyz.com. When any of the visitors try to access xyz.com or

    abc.com, he will get the same site. For domain aliasing domain

    xyz.com to abc.com, the only requirement is I need to register

    the domain name xyz.com and set the nameservers of the domain

    pointing to the server of the abc.com.

    I hope I am clear enough.

    Thanks,

    Nici
