How do I create a Domain Alias/Mapping?




Firstly, you must order the Domain Alias/Mapping Addon from your Client Area. Once the order is paid and completed, please follow the instructions below:

This article will walk you through the process of creating a new Domain Alias using the Plesk control panel.

  1. Log in to Plesk

  2. Once logged in, click the ‘Home’ button in the left navigation frame.

  3. Click on the domain name you wish to create a domain alias for.

  4. Click on the ‘Domain Alias’ button. This will take you to the Domain Alias manager

  5. Add a new Domain Alias by clicking the corresponding button (Add Domain Alias).

  6. In the ‘Domain alias name’ field, enter the domain you wish to use an as alias. (ie: If you entered domain.com, domain.com would take you to the domain listed on your account.)

  7. Check the ‘Mail’ and ‘Web’ checkboxes to use this alias for receiving email and web service.

    • Selecting the ‘Web’ checkbox is necessary for your website to appear in a browser.

    • Selecting the ‘Mail’ checkbox will redirect email to the addresses specified on your domain. For example, if you create the domain aliasdomainalias.comand your hosted domain is domain.com, all email sent to you@domainalias.com will be sent to you@domain.com. You must have an email account set up for your hosted domain in order for mail to be redirected.

  8. Click the ‘OK’ button to create the domain alias.

After completing the steps above you should have a new Domain Alias listed on the Plesk ‘Domain Alias’ page.
