Domain Aliases

Website aliases are additional domains mapped to your website. By default the Control Panel will create the matching alias of any domains that you add to ensure it works both with the www prefix and without.

For example if you added the website hostname as "example.co.nz" then the Control Panel will create the matching "www.example.co.nz" alias automatically, and visa-versa. This means that either domain can be used to access the website. You can then add additional aliases or remove them by following the instructions below.

In order for a website to be generally accessible you need both the DNS records pointing to your server and the website aliases to be defined. You can read more about this in the FAQ.
